GRAND MASTER'S ADDRESS 

To the Officers and Members of the Most Worshipful 
the Grand Lodge A.F. & A.M. of Canada, in 
the Province of Ontario. 

My Brethren: 

As we meet for the 105th Annual Communic- 
ation of this Grand Lodge, we give thanks to the 
Great Architect of the Universe for His watchful, 
keeping care of each one of us since we met last in 
this place a year ago. Some of our number have 
been called to higher service; others have been 
prevented from attending here today through sick- 
ness and adversities beyond their control. However, 
our country has been spared the ravages of war and 
pestilence, and we have been vouchsafed plentiful 
harvests and an absence of any great national cal- 
amities, but rather a measure of material prosperity. 
For all our blessings we are most grateful to the 
Giver of every good and perfect gift. 

We are privileged to meet again in these sur- 
roundings in this Queen City of Toronto and within 
the facilities provided by the Central Technical High 
School. The Committee on Arrangements, and the 
District Deputy Grand Masters and Masters of the 
six Toronto Districts, have again excelled in their 
welcome and arrangements for the convenience of 
our Annual Communication. Toronto, and the Tor- 
onto brethren, are noted for their gracious hospital- 
ity, which we fully appreciate and thankfully acknow- 
ledge. It is only in this City, with the accommoda- 
tions available, that the requirements of Grand Lodge 
and its guests can be adequately supplied. 

We welcome the guests from other Grand Juris- 
dictions who have honoured us by their presence 
today and we heartily reciprocate the good wishes 
they bring. It has been our great privilege to have 
enjoyed the hospitality and generous kindnesses and 
tributes of fraternal affection from our brethren of 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 41 

the sister Jurisdictions in the Dominion of Canada, 
and also the Grand Jurisdictions beyond our borders 
to the south, and we devoutly wish they all could be 
represented here with us now. Our Annual Com- 
munication, coming - beyond the middle of July, is 
unique in that respect, so we could hope that it is a 
time when these brethren could share with us this 
opportunity of fraternal association without the fru- 
strating - experience of conflicting dates and engage- 
ments. May our proceedings furnish all with some 
fresh enthusiasm for the great cause of Freemasonry 
in our day and happy recollections of a pleasant 
visit among their Ontario brethren. 



NECROLOGY 

Our Heavenly Father has called home very 
many of our members during this past year. The 
repoit of the Committee on Fraternal Dead will deal 
with our tribute to their memory. Particularly 
heavy have been the losses sustained by our Board 
of General Purposes, through the passing of four of 
our Past Grand Masters and two of the Honorary 
Members ; namely, Most Wor. Bros. Frank A. Copus, 
John A. McRae, Charles S. Hamilton and Nelson C. 
Hait, and Rt. Wor. Bros. Smith Shaw and John Ness. 



The Dean of our Past Grand Masters, Frank A. 
Copus, was born in Guildford, Surrey, England, on 
March 22nd, 1879 and died suddenly at his home in 
Owen Sound, Ontario, on May 1st, i960. 

On graduation he entered newspaper work in 
Stratford and London. Returning to Stratford in 
1905 he entered the life insurance business which he 
pursued with honor and distinction. A well earned 
reputation for integrity, assiduity and keenness of 
intellect was rewarded when he was appointed 
Agency Manager for the Mutual Life Assurance

Company of Canada, heading- the organization for 
the Counties of Perth and Huron. He held this post 
for over 30 years and until retirement from active 
duties in 1945. 

Despite the heavy business responsibilities which 
he carried he found time and strength for service 
to the community and country as a public spirited 
citizen. He was active in Board of Trade, Community 
efforts and his Church. As a lay delegate from St. 
James' Church (Anglican) at Stratford and later 
from St. George's Church at Owen Sound he was for 
years a member of the Synod of the Diocese of Huron, 
serving actively on the Executive Committee of the 
Diocese. He was Rector's warden at St. James' 
Church; at Owen Sound he was a lay reader at St. 
George's Church. 

It was in Freemasonry, however, that he found a 
cause upon which could be expended the vast amount 
of energy and ability that was his. 

He was initiated into Tecumseh Lodge, No. 144, 
Stratfqrd, on April 10th, 1907, at the age of 28, and 
was elected Worshipful Master in 1911, and D.D.G.M. 
of South Huron District in 1919. He was elected to 
the Board in 1924, was Chairman of Benevolence 
1929 - 1930, Deputy Grand Master in 1931, Grand 
Master 1933, 1934, Chairman of Fraternal Corres- 
pondence 1947 to 1955, Chairman of Fraternal 
Relations 1956 to time of his death. He was also a 
life member of The Barton Lodge, No. 6, St. 
Andrew's, No. 16, Acacia, No. 61, St. George's, No. 
88, North Star, No. 322, Stratford, No. 332, Uni- 
versity, No. 496, Ulster, No. 537 and Kilwinning, 
No. 565. For years and until the time of his passing 
he was the Grand Representative of the United 
Grand Lodge of England. 

In Capitular Masonry he was a member and Past 
First Principal of Tecumseh Chapter, and Past Grand 
Superintendent of Huron District of the Grand 



TORONTO. ONTARIO. 1960 43 

Chapter of Royal Arch Masons of Canada. He was 
Past Preceptor of St. Elmo Preceptory, Knights 
Templar. 

In 1934 he was admitted to membership in the 
Royal Order of Scotland. In the Scottish Rite, he was 
a member of the London Lodge of Perfection, Rose 
Croix Chapter and Moore Sovereign Consistory. In 
1924 he was coroneted an Honorary Inspector-General 
33° and in 1933 crowned a Sovereign Grand In- 
spector-^General of the Supreme Council of the 
Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite for the Dominion 
of Canada. For many years he rendered outstanding 
service on various Committees and as Grand Prior. 

Despite his exacting activities in many fields of 
endeavour his home life was uppermost in his 
thoughts, being devoted to his wife and family. In 
1903 he married Christena Stewart, of Stratford. 
On December 31st, 1953, they celebrated their 50th 
Wedding anniversary with an unbroken family circle 
of a son, Duncan S. Copus of Toronto, and two 
daughters, Mary (Mrs. Robert J. Thistle of Owen 
Sound) and Christene (Mrs. John A. Nornabell, of 
Peterborough), and four grandchildren, all of whom 
survive him. 

He was buried from St. James Anglican Church, 
Stratford, with service being conducted by Vener- 
able Archdeacon F. Fwynne Lightbourne on May 
4th, 1960. There were in attendance, to pay the last 
offices of r.espect, the Grand Master and all the Past 
Grand Mastejrs except two, who were at a great 
distance and unaware of the funeral, and a large 
company of Grand Lodge officers and friends, in 
addition to his immediate family. Interment was 
made in the Stratford Mausoleum. 



Most Won*. Bro. John Alexander McRae was born 
on January 24th, 1890, at Beaverton, Ontario, of

monstrator and lecturer in chemistry in Queen's and 
Toronto Universities and went to the University of 
Manchester, England, on a fellowship in 1919, where 
he obtained his Ph. D. and, afterwards, was awarded 
his Doctorate based on his research work in organic 
chemistry. He returned to Queen's in 1921 and 
advanced to head of the Department of Chemistry in 
1941, which position he held until retirement in 1956.

He was deeply interested in Freemasonry, being 
initiated in Ancient St. John's Lodge, No. 3, in 1911 
and, on returning from England, he affiliated with 
Queen's Lodge, No. 578, Kingston and, in 1926 be- 
came Worshipful Master. In 1930 he was elected

Rev. M. V. Putnam, B.A. There were present the 
Grand Master and officers of Qrand Lodge, with 
many friends and University associates. Interment 
was made in the Stone Church Cemetery, Beaveo-ton, 
Ontario. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 45 

He is survived by his widow, Catherine Logan, 
formerly of Invemesshire, Scotland, whom he mar- 
ried in 1925, and one brother, Rt. Wor. Bro. George 
W. McRae of Toronto. Professor John McRae was 
a Scholar, Scientist and Educator, who made a great 
contribution to his day and generation in his chosen 
field of endeavour. Having inherited the fine princi- 
ples of integrity and concentration on the fine values 
of life, he put them into practice and Freemasonry 
has been benefited by his devoted service in all 
capacities through almost a half century. We will 
miss his counsel and advice in this Grand Lodge. 



Most Worshipful Bro. Charles Stanton Hamilton 
was born in Waterloo County on November 30th, 
1884. His mother died at his birth and he was rear- 
ed by his mateimal grandmother, a pioneer from the 
Highlands of Scotland, who contributed greatly to 
moulding his strength of character, high ideals and 
integrity. 

He received his education in Waterloo County 
Public Schools and Gait Collegiate and joined The 
Trusts and Guarantee Company Limited in 1906 as 
Transfer Officer, successively becoming Secretary, 
Assistant Manager, Manager of Toronto Office, Gen- 
eral Manager in 1934, and Vice President in 1937. 
Later he was connected with the Crown Trust Com- 
pany. He had a keen business ability and an affable 
and friendly manner, which made him a host of 
friends. He was President of the Dominion Mort- 
gage and Investment Association in 1938-39, and 
President of the Trust Companies Association in 
1942-43. In 1940. he was appointed to the Board of 
Governors of the Toronto General Hospital. He was 
a member of the Toronto Board of Trade, the 
National Yacht Club, the Empire Club and the 
Canadian Club. He was a fisherman and hunter of 
more than ordinary skill. 



46 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

He was devoted to Freemasonry. Initiated in 
Ashlar Lodge, No. 247, Toronto, in 1913, he became 
Worshipful Master in 1923-24, Treasurer in 1926, 
District Deputy Grand Master of Toronto District 
"C" 1927-28 and was appointed to the Board of Gen- 
eral Puirposes in 1933. He was Chairman of the 
Library Committee 1934-37, Acting Chairman of

of the Supreme Council 33° Ancient and Accepted 
Scottish Rite for Canada in 1923 and an Active 33°

of the Scottish Rite from 1937 to his death. He was 
also a member of the Royal Order of Scotland and 
was the Grand Representative of the Grand Lodge 
of Manitoba near our Grand Lodge. 

With his wealth of experience in business and 
finance, his deep interest in the Craft and the 
Scottish Rite, he was able to make a great and last- 
ing contribution to the prosperity and success of 
these fraternal organizations, in all of which he was 
one of the senior members and was held in the high- 
est respect and regard. 

He died at his home in Toronto of a heart attack 
suddenly on Sunday morning May 29th, 1960, and 
was buried from Morley S. Bedford Chapel after 
service conducted by his minister, Rev. Dr. John 
Short of St. George's United Church, with interment 
in Mount Pleasant Cemetery. He is survived by his 
widow, the former Anne Mason. 

It is hard to believe that Charlie Hamilton will 
not be with the brethren again in this Grand Lodge. 
He seemed to be so vital and enduring. But he has 
left behind him the memory of faithful and effect- 
ive service to Masonry and will long be remembered 
for his multitude of good works and kindly advice.

We extend our sincere sympathy to the Grand 
Lodge of Manitoba in the passing of Most Wor. Bro. 
John R. C. Evans, Grand Master in 1954, who died 
July 23rd, 1959. John Evans was a great man and 
Mason. He was President of Brandon College in 
Brandon, Manitoba, and was in the midst of a far- 
reaching programme of extension of that College's 
buildings and facilities at the time of his death. He 
was guest speaker at the Grand Master's dinner at 
our Annual Communication of Grand Lodge in Tor- 
onto, July 16th, 1958, just about a year before his 
death, and his address will long be remembered by 
those who were privileged to hear it. He was an 
active member of the Supreme Council 33° of the 
Scottish Rite in Canada and a member of the Royal 
Order of Scotland. He will be greatly missed in the 
field of education in Canada, as well as in Free- 
masonry. 

To all those near in kinship and affection to 
these our most respected and beloved brethren now 
departed, we extend our sincere tribute of sympathy. 

Now the labourer's task is o'er; 
Now the battle day is past 
Now upon the farther shore 
Lands the voyagar at last. 
Father, in Thy gracious keeping, 
Leave we now Thy servants sleeping.

I heard a voice from heaven, saying unto me, 
Write, from henceforth blessed are the dead which 
die in the Lord : Even so, saith the Spirit, for they 
rest from their labours.

Grand Chaplain: 

Almighty and Eternal God, who art the Source 
of life and health, we remember with thanksgiving 
these our brethren, who, having finished their course 
on earth, have passed to the Grand Lodge Above. 
We pray that their life of service and example of 
faithfulness may inspire us who follow them to 
greater and more fruitful service to Thv honour 
and glory. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, with whom do live the spirits of 
them that depart hence in the Lord, and with whom 
the souls of the faithful are in joy and felicity ; we 
praise and magnify thy Holy Name for all thy 
servants who have finished their course and have 
kept the faith ; and, committing our brethren to thy 
gracious keeping, we pray that we, with them, 
and with all those that are departed in the true 
faith of thy Holy Name, may have our consum- 
mation and bliss, both in bodv and soul, in thy 
eternal and everlasting glory. Through Jesus Christ 
our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, Father of all mercies, and giver 
of all comfort; deal graciously, we pray thee, with 
those who mourn, that, casting every care on thee, 
they may know the consolation of Thy love. Through 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

The Lord bless, and keep us ; the Lord lift up the 
light of His countenance upon us, and give us peace, 
now and for evermore. Amen. 

The brethrefn resumed their seats and the

TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 53

as Qrand Treasurer until the Annual Com- 
munication of Grand Lodge. 

M.W. Bro. Dunlop had served as Grand Treas- 
urer of this Grand Lodge, for over twenty years, 
with outstanding success and to the gratification of 
the brethren and the benefit of our Fraternity. We 
offer him our most gratef ul thanks. 

It was greatly appreciated when M.W. Bro. 
Heam was persuaded to carry on the excellent tradi- 
tions of this office in the emergency and with such 
satisfactory results. 

(b) Due to the death of M.W. Bro. F. A. Copus, 
Chairman of the Committee on Fraternal 
Relations, I appointed M.W. Bro. H. L. Martyn, 
a member of the Commission on Information 
and Recognition (Washington Conference), to 
fill the vacancy. 

(c) Due to the death of M.W. Bro. N. C. Hart, 
Chairman of the Committee on Fraternal Cor- 
respondence, I appointed M.W. Bro. W. J. 
Dunlop to fill the vacancy and to complete the 
the reviews of the other Grand Lodges. 

PAST RANK 

1. Owing to weather conditions in the district, 
which delayed his installation as Wonshipful 
Master of Northern Light Lodge, No. 93, Wor. 
Bro. William Norman Ross served fifteen days 
less than the full yeas term. I recommend that 
he be given the rank of Past Master. 

2. The By-laws of Mississippi Lodge, No. 147 hav- 
ing been changed with regard to the time of 
installation, Wor. Bro. Gordon H. Duncan will 
have seitved three weeks short of the required 
full year. I recommend that he be given the

be given the rank of Past Master.

6. Wor. Bro. James Peden of King Solomon Lodge,

of the Lodge, including Junior and Senior 
Warden, with perfect attendance. Five months 
after his election and installation as Worship- 
ful Masten, he was ordered by his firm to super- 
vise construction on the East Coast. In view of 
these circumstances, beyond his control, and his 
excellent record, and supported by his Lodge, I 
recommend that he be granted the rank of Past 
Master.

Lodge, No. 410, to hold their regular meeting

ful Master of Corinthian Lodge, No. 513, on

Master be granted posthumously.

Worshipful Master of Sudbury Lodge, No. 658 
on January 19th, 1959, and served as Worship- 
ful Master for two meetings — February 16th 
and February 23rd. Following this, he died, 
and his successor, a past Grand Lodge Officer, 
was installed for the balance of the year on 
April 27th, 1959. I recommend that Wor. Bro. 
Perry be granted the rank of Past Master 
posthumously. 

11. Dispensation having been granted Sunnylea 
Lodge, No. 664, to amend their By-laws, thereby 
advancing the time of Installation of Officers 
by two weeks, Wor. Bro. L. J. Wildridge served

full year. I recommend that he be given the 
rank of Past Master. 



12. Owing to the very serious illness of Wor. Bro.

ditions of the Masonic premises. The assistance of 
tine Grand Lodge Advisory Committee on Lodge 
Buildings, with V. Wor. Bro. George T. Evans as

so functional and attractive and the Jurisdiction of 
benefiting from the co-operation which exists in

previous engagement in Toronto, I missed that of

receipt of a great many invitations asking that our

resentative, to accept all these kind offers of hospi- 
tality and share in the opportunities of fraternal 
interchange of ideals and aspirations, but all were 
most deeply appreciated. We regretted the inability 
to be present when this proved impossible but we 
hope next year to be able to attend those which had

Secretary, at the Annual gathering of all the Grand 
Masters and Grand Secretaries on this continent, 
together with visitors from across the Atlantic and 
Pacific and from South America. While some of the 
time is taken up with meetings and particular con- 
cerns and activities of our brethren of the U.S.A., 
there are also many items in the conferences from 
which a great deal of information and helpful dis- 
cussions are derived for the benefit of Masonry in 
general and our own attitudes and applications in 
particular. The debates on ; 

"Should Masonry adopt a more open policy in 
order that the profane may know for what it stands 
and thus attract professional and outstanding 
leaders ?" 

"Should there be Universal Instruction of candi- 
dates after being elected but before Initiation?" 

"Should there be developed a greater degree of 
co-operation between Grand Lodges and collateral 
bodies of Masonry ?" 

"Should Masonry assume a more aggressive role 
in promoting the principle of separation of Church 
and State?" 

"Should larger Lodges with good talent assist 
the small Lodges with Degree Work?" 

While one did not necessarily agree with the 
affirmative or negative presentations of these sub- 
jects, they were all thought stimulating. 

The Grand Secretaries' Conference followed the 
Grand Masters' Conference on February 24th and 
discussed many of the practical problems confront- 
ing the Grand Lodge Offices and they shared ex- 
periences in solving them. 

Excellent speakers gave the principle addresses 
to both conferences, — Luther W. Youngdahl, United

States District Judge, U.S. District Court for the 
District of Columbia, at the Grand Masters' Banquet, 
and M.W. Bro. Raymond C. Ellis, P.G.M. of New 
York, at the Grand Secretaries' Banquet. This 
annual privilege of meeting and fraternizing with 
the leaders of Masonry, speaking the English and 
other tongues, is one in which our Grand Lodge 
should continue to participate. Our own Past Grand 
Master, Harry L. Martyn, is a member of the Com- 
mission on Information for Recognition and is 
making a valuable contribution to the Conference. 

VISIT OF THE GRAND MASTER OF THE GRAND 
LODGE OF THE STATE OF ISRAEL 

On March 23rd, 1960, M.W. Bro. Max Seligman, 
Grand Master, accompanied by the Deputy Grand 
Master, R,t. Wor. Bro. Max Silverstone, of the Grand 
Lodge of the State of Israel, visited Palestine Lodge, 
No. 559, Toronto, and both were received and wel- 
comed on behalf of our Grand Lodge by our Deputy 
Grand Master, Rt. Wor. Bro. Russell W. Treleaven, 
and our Grand Secretary, Rt. Wor. Bro. E. G. Dixon. 
Our Deputy Grand Master was the recipient of a 
beautifully engrossed Hebrew Bible inscribed by 
M.W. Bro. Seligman. Bro. Seligman was born in 
Wales but now practises law in Israel. It was my 
pleasure to be entertained in the Parliamentary 
Restaurant at Ottawa by Bro. J. W. Baskin, M.P., for 
Renfrew South, at a luncheon given to the Grand 
Master of Israel and his friends on the occasion of 
their visit to the Capital. It was also the occasion 
of an interview between Bro. Seligman and the Prime 
Minister. 

It was also my great pleasure and privilege to 
meet in Ottawa, during their short visits in the 
Capital this year, Rt. Wor. Bro. Robert H. Dickson, 
Provincial Grand Secretary of the Provincial Grand 
Lodge of Down of the Ancient Free and Accepted 
Masons of Ireland, who is also the Grand Represent- 
ative of the Grand Lodge of Manitoba, and Rt. Wor. 
Bro. T. Muiir Wilson, J.P., Provincial Grand Master 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 65 

of the Provincial Grand Lodge of Ayrshire of the 
Grand Lodge of Scotland. It was unfortunate that 
time did not permit of the exchange of further 
Masonic courtesies with these most interesting and 
distinguished brethren. 

HONORARY MEMBERSHIP ON THE BOARD 

During the year we have lost two of our Hon- 
orary Members of the Board by death, Rt. Wor. Bros. 
Smith Shaw and John Ness, and one of our Honorary 
Members has been elected Deputy Grand Master, Rt. 
Wor. Bro. R. W. Treleaven. I recommend that Rt. 
Wor. Bro. George F. Clark, Chairman of Benevolence 
since 1953 and a member of the Board since 1948, 
and Rt. Wor. Bro. John R. Rumball, Chairman of the 
Committee on Grievances and Appeals since 1951 and 
a member of the Board since 1948, and Rt. Wor. Bro. 
Harry S. Johnston, Chairman of Printing and Sup- 
plies since 1945 and a member of the Board since 
1941, be now made Honorary Members of the Board 
to fill the vacancies. 

GRAND MASTER'S BANQUET 

A very fine programme has been arranged for 
this evening in the Canadian Room of the Royal York 
Hotel, where we hope to accommodate all the 
brethren who wish to attend the Grand Master's 
Banquet. I am most grateful to the Committee in 
charge of these arrangements, M.W. Bro. Maher, 
M.W. Bro. Heam, M.W. Bro. Martyn, Rt. Wor. Bro. 
Dixon, and Rt. Wor. Bro. Bailey. I am also indebted 
to the District Deputy Grand Masters for their assist- 
ance to Rt. Wor. Bro. Bailey in the distribution of the 
tickets. The guest speaker, M.W. Bro. Thomas S. 
Roy, a Past Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of 
Massachusetts, was bom in Canada and has made a 
wonderful contribution to his fellow men as a preach- 
er and as a Mason. Those who have been privileged 
to hear him will welcome his return to our annual 
banquet.

While it has been physically impossible to accept 
all the invitations received from within our own 
Jurisdiction, I have tried to do all that I could to 
attend and bring" the greetings of Grand Lodge to

pany, on ceittain of the longer motor trips of the 
Grand Director of Ceremonies, V.W. Bro. B. Lishman, 
and V.W. Bro. J. R. McFarland, Grand Steward. In 
addition, I am greatly indebted to many other Grand 
Lodge Officers for their kindness in providing motor 
transportation to and from meetings. 

DISCIPLINE 

In the case of Bro. Robert Hunt of Simcoe Lodge, 
No. 644, Toronto, against whom a charge of un- 
masonic conduct was laid, I appointed, on March 14th, 
1960, a Commission consisting of Rt. Wor. Bro. M. 
C. Hooper, Chairman, Rt. Wor. Biro. Roy Baylis and 
Bro. G. T. Rogers, to enquire into the evidence. On 
May 20th, 1960, the Commission reported finding 
Biro. Hunt guilty as charged and, in accordance with 
their recommendation, I suspended Bro. Hunt until 
this Annual Communication when the Committee on 
Grievances and Appeals will report. 



68 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

RULINGS 

I recommend that the ruling of 1933, under 
Physical Disability, (page 158 of the Constitution), 
reading: "A Lodge may not receive an application 
for initiation firom a man who is totally blind," be 
deleted . The question of the reception of an applic- 
ation from a blind man will then come under Section 
181A whereby all physical imperfections will be dealt 
with in the same way and the same procedure follow- 
ed, leaving the final decision with the Grand Master 
in these exceptional cases. 

NEW GRAND LODGE OFFICES 

The work on the new Remembrance Memorial 
Building in Hamilton to contain the Administration 
Offices of Grand Lodge, is developing satisfactorily. 
Unfortunately, progress was held up for! some three 
months by a carpenters' strike in that city, so that 
the facilities are not yet available, but the building 
should be finished and ready for occupancy in the 
late fall of this year. The entire building is truly a 
memorial to those who have, throughout the last 100 
years, and more, contributed to the growth and 
vitality of Freemasonry in this Jurisdiction. But 
particularly, will it symbolize our appreciation of the 
debt we owe to those members of our Graft who 
served, and who laid down their lives, in the Great 
Wars, for Liberty and Freedom, for, without the 
victory, Masonry might well have been suppressed 
in this land. Grand Lodge will occupy most of the 
basement and ground floor, and, for the present, the 
second floor will be available for rental purposes to 
a suitable tenant or tenants to assist in providing 
income for its operation. In the course of the coming 
years, when Grand Lodge requirements may have 
expanded beyond the facilities now contemplated, the 
second floor will be made available without incurring 
future capital expense. In the foyer leading to the 
general office of Grand Lodge, therie will be a suitable 
altar and marble plaque, flanked by the flags of our 
country, the whole area to be flood-lighted in per- 



TORONTO. ONTARIO, 1960 69 

petual remembrance of our obligation to those who 
have given so much for us to enjoy in our day. 

As Grand Master, I have appointed Rt. Wor. Bro. 
Walter H. Gibson, as Chairman of a Special Com- 
mittee to set up a special fund to affond an oppor- 
tunity for every brother and Lodge in the jurisdic- 
tion to make a voluntary contribution to this Mem- 
orial. Contributions may be made either through 
the Lodges or directly to Rt. Wor. Bro. E. G. Dixon, 
acting as Secretary-Treasurer of the Fund. At the 
time of writing, the reports indicate the great inter- 
est and support of the Lodges and the brethren, 
with approximately $19,000. being already received. 
It is evident that this fund should remain open until 
the end of the year, to permit the completion of the 
diligence of the lodge organizations presently in oper- 
ation, much of which cannot be concluded until after 
the summer, recess. 

I wish to express my thanks for the support 
which this project has, and will, receive from the 
Craft in general in response to my letter to all the 
Lodges. I am certain that the generations of Masons 
to come will be proud of our Grand Lodge Remem- 
brance Memorial Building. 

HISTORIC TROWEL RETURNS 

On October 30th, 1848, at St. Catharines, under 
the auspices of the Provincial Grand Lodge of Canada 
West, Rt. Wor. Bro. Sir Allan N. MacNab, Provincial 
Grand Master, in an impressive ceremony, laid the 
corner stone of a Town Hall. He used a silver 
trowel suitably engraved which was afterwards 
presented to him by the President of the Board of 
Police. One hundred and eleven years later, this 
trowel was discovered in the antique department of 
a large departmental store in Perth, Western Aus- 
tralia. Through the personal kindness of the Grand 
Secretary of the Grand Lodge of Western Australia, 
Rt. Wor:. Bro. N. J. Munro, it was forwarded to our 
Grand Secretary, who arranged with His Worship 
the Mayor of St. Catharines, Brio. Wilfred R. Bald, 



70 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

for a formal presentation of the trowel to that City. 
On March 18th, 1960, this presentation was perform- 
ed by ouir Deputy Grand Master, Rt. Wor. Bro. R. 
W. Treleaven, and our. Grand Secretary in the 
presence of a large company of the Civic authorities 
of the City of St. Catharines. It will be placed in the 
Civic Archives. This is but another instance of the 
chain of Masonic influence and co-operation which 
binds us together in mutual interest though on 
different continents. 

LODGE FUNCTIONS ON SUNDAY 

It has been brought to my attention that some 
Lodges have 'been using the lodge summons to notify 
the members of lodge functions to be held on Sunday. 
Oujr rulings state "No meetings can be held 
by a constituent Lodge on Sunday, except for 
the purpose of attending Divine Service, or for 
performing the Funeral Ceremonies of the Craft". 
(1944). Masonry in our Jurisdiction holds strictly 
to the preservation of Sunday as a day of rest from 
Masonic labours and no official Masonic work is 
permitted on that day. Holding, on officially circul- 
ating a notice, of social functions of the lodge, 
etc., to foe held on Sunday, constitutes a breach of 
the spirit of the existing ruling and should be dis- 
continued. This does not interfere with the private 
observance of Sunday by the individual, who does not 
thereby interfere with the freedom of others in this 
regard, but it does affect the corporate action of 
Masons in carrying out Craft activities as such on 
Sunday. 

SUSPENSIONS AND RESIGNATIONS 

It will be seen, from the Grand Secretary's 
statistical repoirt, that we sustained a loss of 869 
members by suspension and 948 by resignation. We 
have had an increase in our membership, notwith- 
standing these losses, of 802. We have 613 warrant- 
ed lodges and 3 under dispensation, making a total 
of 616 lodges in this Jurisdiction. The loss by death 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 71 

is beyond our control and will continue to be heavy 
as the age of our membership increases. We cannot 
solicit membership fi^m the uninitiated. We can 
only recommend our Fraternity to the world by our 
example and by letting our good works shine before 
men that they may be seen and appreciated to the 
Glory of the Great Architect of the Universe and for 
the benefit of our fellowmen. However:, we can do 
something positive with regard to a great number 
of suspensions for non-payment of dues and for 
resignations which are based on the loss of interest 
of the member in the activities of his Lodge. In 
these strenuous days of so many pressing, and often 
conflicting, interests and demands on a man's time 
and energy, it is not surprising that special efforts 
must be exerted to keep the active interest of a 
member who feels he has no participating function in 
his lodge's activities. Lodge organization should 
combat the tendency to drift away from the meet- 
ings and should furnish the personal interest which 
will anchor the attention and continued loyalty of 
both the new and the older member. No one should 
be suspended for N.P.D. without first being sympa- 
thetically and personally interviewed by some of the 
principal officers, or past officers, of the Lodge, and, 
if the problem is financial, there should be found 
ways and means of overcoming that difficulty with- 
out losing the member. If the trouble stems from 
other causes, the proper approach wall often renew 
interest and understanding and, when the brother 
finds he is of importance to the brethren of his 
Lodge, there should be a definitely favourable re- 
sponse on his part. This matter calls for. a great 
expenditure of time and effort on the part of the 
enthusiastic lodge members and the officers but it 
is truly Masonic work in a field which will yield 
practical rewards. Where the spirit of fraternity 
has died in the member, it is better, in most cases, 
that he take his demit rather than lapse into sus- 
pension. Let us try to keep the family within our 
Lodges intact. 



72 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

DIVINE SERVICES OF LODGES AND DISTRICTS 

It is an indication of the reverent spirit of 
worship in the Craft, that I note the prevailing oc- 
currence of the notices in the lodge summons of 
Divine Services in the Churches of our several 
Districts, either under the auspices of the local Lodge 
or of the whole District, with the District Chaplain 
presiding over the Service of Worship. We must 
never forget that these are occasions when, as a 
corporate body of Masons, we come together to make 
evident our faith in the Everlasting God, to confess 
our sins, and to seek forgiveness, glorifying Him in 
all His revelation of Himself in the Volume of the 
Sacred Law, and to praise and magnify His Most 
Holy Name. It is not in the spirit of parading our- 
selves for public attention, nor to detract from our 
private responsibilities in the Church of our choice, 
but, rather, as a composite evidence of our adoration 
and the need of the blessing of the Most High that 
we do this ,and we are strengthened and sustained as 
individuals and as Masons. We are most grateful 
to the ordained servants of God who have, in their 
capacity as Chaplains, contributed to the spiritual 
health of their brethren. 

HONOURS RECEIVED FROM OTHER 
GRAND LODGES 

I acknowledge with gratitude and humility, the 
honours conferred upon me as your Grand Master 
by sister Grand Jurisdictions and which I will always 
cherish as a mark of fraternal friendship and mutual 
regard. 

(a) The Henry Price Medal presented by M. Wor. 
Bro. Andrew G. Jenkins, Grand Master of the 
Grand Lodge of Massachusetts, in Boston on 
December 28th, 1959. 

(b) Honorary Rank of Past Deputy Grand Master 
by the Grand Ix>dge of Saskatchewan in Regina 
on June 18th, 1959 (attending as Deputv Grand 
Master representing our Grand Master). 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 7S 

(c) The Josiah Drummond Medal for Distinguished 
Masonic Service presented by M. Wor. Bro. John 
Littlef ield, Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of 
Maine, in Portland May 2nd, 1960. 

(d) The Philip C. Tucker Medal for Distinguished 
Masonic Service, presented by M.W. Bro. Frank 

Brownell, Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of 
Vermont in Burlington, on June 16th, 1960. 

CONCLUSION 

The year since my installation as your Grand 
Master has sped by with astounding rapidity. The 
days and nights have been filled with a multitude of 
duties, of which Masonry has had a very large share. 
It seems impossible to accomplish all one would wish, 
yet one must give thanks to Divine Providence for 
health and strength to meet the recurring demands. 
Much that I would like to have accomplished must 
be left for the coming year, when I hope to more 
adequately meet the requirements of visitations 
throughout this far-flung Jurisdiction and of 
courtesy visits, which it is such a delight to pay, on 
the invitations of our sister Jurisdicions. It is a 
special regret that it has not been possible to visit the 
Grand Lodges of our sister Provinces of British 
Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, New 
Brunswick and Nova Scotia. Confliction of dates, 
and changes of dates, have contributed to this un- 
fortunate circumstance and the funeral of our be- 
loved Dean of Past Grand Masters, Frank A. Copus, 
cancelled the intended visit to Winnipeg at the last 
moment. I trust we will be invited to visit these, 
our close friends, before my term expires. 

It would not be possible to enumerate here all 
I owe to the Past Grand Masters, the Deputy Grand 
Master, the District Deputy Grand Masters and other 
officers of Grand Lodge for their loyal and efficient 
support during the year. The work of the Com- 
mittees has progressed smoothly. Our work of 
Benevolence under the supervision of Rt. Wor. Bro. 
George J. McQueen, has been most effective and help- 



74 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

ful, as will be found in the report by Rt. Wor. Bro. 
George F. Clark. Our Treasurer will report the fin- 
ancial results of the year, and the adjustments 
necessary to meet our building- programme and pre- 
vailing conditions in the Craft. The great losses we 
have sustained in the ranks of our Past Grand 
Masters have been a great blow to your Grand 
Master in the loss of friendship, counsel and advice, 
as well as aid in carrying out the official duties of 
representation. The daily contact with the Grand 
Secretary's Office and the co-operation of the staff, 
and that of the Auditor and Librarian, have made 
the discharge of the duties of Grand Master both 
pleasant and, I trust, efficient. Rt. Wor. Bro. Dixon 
has been an invaluable and constant source of help 
and his wide experience and contacts have greatly 
eased the burden of pressing responsibilities, have 
facilitated the meeting of schedules, and have shield- 
ed me from attempting to perfo'rm the impossible in 
appointments. For all these individual and collect- 
ive contributions to the work of Grand Lodge during 
the past year, I pay my fullest measure of grateful 
tribute. And to M. Wor. Bro. Harry L. Marty n my 
most sincere thanks are due for his unfailing help- 
fulness, his ready assistance, and experienced advice. 

We face, together, another Masonic year in a 
world terribly disturbed and divided. Our gener- 
ation has known wars and rumours of wars but to- 
day there are the prospects of an all-out world con- 
flagration, with all the potential of atomic warfare 
and nuclear weapons of such awful possibilities of 
total annihilation of civilization as to stagger all 
human imagination. Yet we look with confidence to 
the overruling Providence of the Great Architect of 
the Universe, who created all things by the word of 
His power and who will not permit the creatures of 
His creating to destroy the works of His Creation 
until His own good time and in His way. Masons 
exist to be builders in a free world under God. We 
have only to fulfill our destiny by doing our daily 
duties faithfully in the knowledge given to us of the 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 75 

Fatherhood of God and His purpose that all men 
should be Brothers. "Glory to God in the highest, 
and in eauth Peace, Goodwill toward men." 

"Lord, make me a channel of your peace, 

Where there is hatred, let me bring - love; 

Where there is wrong, forgiveness, 

Where there is doubt, let me bring faith ; 

Where there is despair, hope, 

Where there is darkness, light, 

Where there is sadness, let me bring joy. 

Lord, grant that I may seek rather to 

Comfort than to be comforted. 

To understand than to be understood. 

To love, than to be loved. 

For it is by giving that one receives. 

It is by self-forgetting, that one finds, 

It is by forgiving that one is forgiven. 

"St. Francis of Assisi"' 

Sincerely and fraternally, 

C, McL. PITTS, 

Grand Master.

RULING 

The ruling of 1933, under Physical Disability, 
(page 158 of the Constitution), reading: "A Lodge 
may not receive an application for initiation from a 
man who is totally blind," is deleted. The question 
of the reception of an application from a blind man 
will then come under Section 181A whereby all 
physical imperfections will be dealt with in the same 
way and the same procedure followed, leaving the 
final decision with the Grand Master in these ex- 
ceptional cases. 

APPOINTMENT OF COMMITTEE ON THE 
GRAND MASTER'S ADDRESS 

At the conclusion of the Address it was moved 
by M.W. Bro. H. L. Martyn, seconded by M.W. Bro. 
J. P. Maher, and carried: That a committee com- 
posed of all the Past Grand Masters present, with 
M.W. Bro. W. J. Dunlop as Chairman, consider and 
report to Grand Lodge on the Grand Master's Ad- 
dress. The motion was put by the Deputy Grand 
Master. 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON THE 
GRAND MASTER'S ADDRESS 

To the Officers and Members of the Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. 
of Canada in the Province of Ontario. 

Brethren : 



78 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Traditionally, the Grand Master's Address is the highlight 
of any Annual Communication of Grand Lodge. In it is a 
detailed report of his activities during the year; and, usually, 
there is a forecast of his policy for his second year. But 
none of his decisions or rulings can have the force of Masonic 
law untii they have been formally approved by Grand Lodge. 
That is the reason for the appointment of this Committee of 
Past Grand Masters. 

We have all listened with interest to the Introduction and 
to the heart-felt and heart-warming tributes our Grand 
Master paid to the six distinguished brethren who, during the 
year, passed to the Grand Lodge Above and whose loss will 
be felt for many years by all our members. They were our 
brethren, our co-workers, and our intimate friends. 

To the thirteen Lodges (named in the Address) which 
completed a full century of Masonic activity we extend our 
heartiest congratulations with the hope that they may enjoy 
another hundred years of peace and harmony. 

Your Committee approves the appointments the Grand 
Master made on account of the passing of two and ill-health of 
a third Past Grand Master and we also approve of his actions 
with regard to the appointment of Grand Representatives. 

Eleven Masters were unable, for various reasons to com- 
plete a full year in office and the Grand Master recommends 
the award of Past Rank. Your Committee approves of these 
recommendations. That is a very small number among our 
well over six hundred Lodges. 

It is gratifying to be informed that three new Lodges 
have received dispensations and have been instituted; also that 
five new Lodges have been constituted and consecrated and 
have received their warrants. That is growth and develop- 
ment of the best type. Another indication of progress is the 
fact that thirteen Lodges have provided themselves, during 
the year, with new premises. Within a few years, perhaps, 
more of the old "cardiac halls" will give place to more suitable 
lodge rooms which the older brethren can easily reach without 
climbing stairs. 

Our Grand Master visited intensively and extensively, 
perhaps more than, for his own good health, he should have 
undertaken and he was always enthusiastically received within 
this Jurisdiction and everywhere else on this continent. 

Your Committee approves of the recommendations the 
Grand Master has made for honorary membership of three of 
our members on the select list of members of the Board of 
General Purposes. Each of these brethren has served with 
distinction over a long period of years. We approve, also, of 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1060 79 

his action in the one case of discipline and we recommend 
adoption by Grand Lodge of his rulings regarding petitions 
from men who are blind. Of course, we approve of the five 
special donations he authorized. 

It is hoped that all members of Grand Lodge will give 
special attention to the Grand Master's outline of the develop- 
ments regarding the new Remembrance Memorial Building 
which is to house the Grand Lodge Offices; and that any 
Lodges that have overlooked his appeal will take the proper 
action as soon as autumn activities commence. It is a project 
which deserves the enthusiastic support of ail. 

Thanks are due the Grand Master for calling attention to 
the ruling of 1944 which states that no lodge meetings can be 
held on Sunday except for the purpose of attending Divine 
Service or for a funeral ceremony. 

The contents of one long paragraph, near the end of the 
Address, entitled "Suspensions and Resignations" should be 
carefully read again and seriously considered by every mem- 
ber of Grand Lodge. It is gratifying to know that there has 
been a gain in membership of 802 but why should there be 
869 suspensions and 948 resignations ? Those of you who may 
read the Fraternal Correspondence will discover that our 
Grand Lodge has fared better than have a good many Grand 
Lodges in the United States where many report losses instead 
of gains and all deplore the numbers of suspensions and resig- 
nations. What has happened? If interest is declining, why 
has it declined and what is the cure? Have the various new 
and modern devices for entertainment taken away the interest 
in Masonry ? The Grand Master makes some excellent 
sue-ee?tions for prevention of losses; let us try them in our 
Lodges. 

The Address winds up with commendation of Masonic 
Church Services and with an eloquent conclusion. With his 
words of gratitude to the Grand Secretary and the other 
Officials we all heartily agree and we wish the Grand Master 
another good year of purposeful activity, less strenuous than 
has been the work of his first year in office. All that he 
has reported in his Address is hereby confirmed and validated 
by Grand Lodge. 

With the highest regard, esteem, and affection for the 
Grand Master this Report is respectfully and fraternally sum- 
mitted to Grand Lodge. 

T. H. Simpson, J. P. Maher, J. A. Hearn, W. L. Wright, 
H. L. Martyn, and W. J. Dunlop, Chairman. 



80 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION

PRESENTATION OF GRAND 
REPRESENTATIVE'S JEWEL 

The Grand Master presented to M.W. Bro. W. 
J. Dunlop, Dean of our Past Grand Masters, the 
Grand Representative's Jewel of the United Grand 
Lodge of England, and congratulated him on his 
appointment. After prolonged applause had sub- 
sided M.W. Bro. Dunlop made a very suitable reply. 

LETTERS OF REGRET 

The Grand Secretary advised that several let- 
ters and communications had been received from 
Grand Masters, distinguished brethren and Grand 
Lodges extending most cordial fraternal greetings 
and best wishes and expressing regret that they 
were unble to be present or represented. 

RECEPTION OF GRAND REPRESENTATIVES 

As the Grand Secretary called the roll of Grand 
Representatives of other Grand Lodges those who 
were present stood up and were welcomed by the 
Grand Master. Grand Honours were then given 
under the direction of the Grand Director of Cere- 
monies. 

AUDITOR'S REPORT 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. of 
Canada, in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

I beg to report having completed the continuous 
monthly audit of the accounts of the Grand Treas- 
urer and of the Grand Secretary for the year ended 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 81 

31st May, 1960, and I have verified the statements 
submitted by the Grand Treasurer showing the Re- 
ceipts and Disbursements of the General and the 
Combined Memorial and Semi-Centennial Funds for 
the year ended May 31st, 1960. 

The Investment Securities of the General, Mem- 
orial and Semi-Centennial Funds, as set out in the 
respective Schedules accompanying- the Grand Treas- 
urer's Report, were produced by the Canada Perm- 
anent Trust Company for my inspection. I found 
them in order. 

I wish to extend my appreciation to the Grand 
Treasurer's Clerk and to the staff at the office of 
the Grand Secretary for their co-operation during 
the audit procedure. 

All of which is fraternally submitted, 

H. FRANK VIGEON, C.A., 

Auditor. 

GRAND TREASURER'S REPORT 

To the Most Worshipful, the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of Grand Lodge A.F. & A.M. of 
Canada, in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

To follow in the footsteps of the previous in- 
cumbent of this office is no mean task. Since 1941, 
Most Worshipful W. J. Dunlop has been presenting 
the Grand Treasurer's Report to this Grand Lodge 
at each Annual Communication, and as many of you 
know, in a most precise and competent manner. 

In October of last year, as a result of indifferent 
health, our former Grand Treasurer was compelled 
to lighten some of the responsibilities which he 
carried, and the office of Grand Treasurer was one 
of them. At the request of our Grand Master, the 



82 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

present incumbent was asked to succeed him for the 
balance of the year. We note with considerable grati- 
tude that M.W. Bro. Dunlop is with us today to give 
us as usual the benefits of his many talents. 

The format of this presentation as in former 
years has been preserved. Following my brief re- 
marks there will appear a Summary of Receipts and 
Disbursements, together with a list of securities at 
par value, of all accounts, as well as a Summary of 
Resources which I recommend to your careful study. 

You will be asked to approve the following 
donations sanctioned by the Grand Master: — 

*Lanark Relief Fund $1,000.00 

Ontario Cancer Society 500.00 

Canadian Health Fund 500.00 

Canadian Boy Scouts 500.00 

Canadian Girl Guides 500.00 

Ontario Crippled Children 500.00 

Salvation Army 500.00 



$4,000.00 

* The item for Lanark Relief Fund for $1,000.00 
was approved upon the recommendation of M.W. 
H. L. Martyn in July of last year, but was paid in 
this fiscal year, and of necessity appears in the 
Auditor's Statement of this year. 

In order to meet construction costs of the new 
Grand Lodge Memorial Building at Hamilton, satis- 
factory arrangements were concluded in August of 
last year with the Bank, to cover our requirements. 
And in order not to disturb our investment portfolio 
by disposing of any securities, certain of them have 
been hypothecated with the Bank, the loan to be 
used as required. For each advance to Masonic 
Holdings for this building program, debentures have 
been received bearing 5%, a total of $220,000.00 
having been issued up to May 31st, 1960. 

A complete study of our financing has been 
under review for many months by the Grand Master, 
the Deputy Grand Master, and the Past Grand 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 83 

Masters, having in view particularly the new in- 
creased costs by way of rent in the new Grand Lodge 
Memorial Building at Hamilton, which will soon be 
ready for occupancy. 

It seems almost incredible that at our meeting 
of the Grand East held on April 22nd when the 
matter of finances was discussed extensively, two 
of our Past Grand Masters who took an active and 
constructive part in the formation of notices of 
motion, which will be presented to you later on, will 
not be with us any more ; they have been called to a 
higher reward. We will miss their counsel very 
much. 

Under Summary of Resources, you will find a 
footnote stating that certain funds in the General 
Account are available for benevolent purposes only, 
in accordance with Section 245 (m) of the Consti- 
tution. 

This indicates that, under present conditions, 
the proportion of dues provided under this section 
to be used for benevolent purposes only is greater 
than necessary to meet all such requirements, though 
it might be well to state here, that, while our 
benevolent requirements are decreasing, no one has 
been neglected, but many factors in today's living 
affect the declining needs of many of our brethren. 

These are some of the reasons why a proposed 
amendment to this Section of the Constitution is 
being presented to Grand Lodge at this time in ac- 
cordance with notice duly given. 

And now as I bring this report to a close, 
actually it has turned out to be a much longer report 
than I had intended, I want to pay my personal 
tribute to those who assisted me during the past 
nine months: the Grand Secretary and his staff, 
the Auditor, the Grand Treasurer's clerk, the Chair- 
man of Audit and Finance, and last but by no means 
least our Past Grand Masters. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted, 

J. A. HEARN, 

Grand Treasurer.

GRAND SECRETARY'S REPORT 

The Grand Secretary presented his report as 
follows : 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of the Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. 
of Canada, in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

I present herewith my twenty-fourth annual 
report for the year ended May 31, 1960, containing 
a Summary of Receipts from various sources placed 
in the General Fund; Details of Receipts in the 
General Fund and Ledger Balances as at May 31, 
1959; a Summary of Receipts for the year; Details 
of the Returns of Lodges as a,t May 31, 1959 ; a 
Summary of the Receipts and Payments to the Grand 
Treasurer on account of the Memorial and Semi- 



92 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Centennial Funds; and a Statement of the Receipts 
and Disbursements on the Memorial and Semi- 
centennial Funds Revenue Account. 

As an appendix to the Proceedings I have re- 
corded the details of the Returns of the 613 warrant- 
ed Lodges and the three Lodges under dispensation, 
as of December 31, 1959. 

Again, and for the eighteenth year in succes- 
sion, I am able to report a net gain in membership, 
this year 802, just 38 fewer than the gain reported 
last year. Our total membership, as of December 
31, 1959 again makes an all-time high of 136,266 and 
as of today we are well over 136,500. 

Deaths, this year, are fewer than last year by 
108; resignations are down 76 but suspensions are up 
5. Against these losses we show 3,962 initiations, 
down 152; 964 affiliations, down 47; 209 restor- 
ations, down 31. Our losses by resignations and 
suspensions should cause our lodge officers to give 
careful thought to these losses. Perhaps a personal 
interview with the member would revive his interest 
and prevent him from depriving himself of the 
privileges of membership. 

Ag-ain this year we constituted and consecrated 
five new Lodges and have three Lodges operating- 
under dispensation to give us a total of 616 Lodges, 
another all-time high. 

We had hopes last year that we would have 
been in our new offices before now but a lengthy 
strike has delayed occupancy. We expect to be 
moving early this fall. M.W. Bro. Hearn will re- 
port more fully on same.

FIFTY YEAR MEDALS 

We are pleased to note that each year the number 
of our members who qualify for our Veterans 
Jubilee Medal (50 years a Mason) increases, due no 
doubt, to the increase in the average span ot lite. 
This year 372 have qualified for and have received 
the Medal, and 28 Past Masters have received our 
Lono- Service Medal (50 years a Past Master). 



94 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION

I cannot speak too highly of the loyalty and 
service given so whole-heartedly by each and every 
member of the staff in the Grand Lodge office. I 
need not single out any one for particular mention 
because there has been the fullest co-operation from 
every member, and to them, individually and col- 
lectively, I convey my sincerest thanks.

COMMITTEE OF SCRUTINEERS 

The Grand Master appointed V.W. Bro. Robert 
Strachan, Chairman of the Committee of Scrutin- 
eers to supervise and count the vote at the election 
of Grand Lodge officers, with power to name the 
members of the Committee. 

REPORTS OF THE DISTRICT DEPUTY 
GRAND MASTERS 

The reports of the thirty-seven District Deputy 
Grand Masters were presented by the Grand Secre- 
tary and on motion of the Deputy Grand Master, 
seconded by the Grand Secretary, they were received 
end referred to the Board of General Purposes. 

The Report of every District Deputy Grand 
Master is addressed to "The Most Worshipful the 
Grand Master, Officers and Members of the Grand 
Lodge, A.F. & A.M. of Canada in the Province of 
Ontario." Each begins, "Most Worshipful Sir and 
Brethren," and every one ends, quite rightly, "Res- 
pectfully and fraternally submitted." To save space 
these formalities are omitted from the beginning 
and end of each Report. 



TORONTO. ONTARO, I960 121 

ALGOMA DISTRICT 

As the representative of the Most Worshipful the Grand 
Master in Algoma District, it was my endeavour to perform 
the duties of this office in a most sincere and diligent 
manner. 

After careful consideration, the theme, "Men of Faith" 
was chosen for a subject to be presented to the Masons of 
Algoma District. In it, I endeavored to bring to the minds 
of all Masons his responsibility in realizing to a greater 
degree his faith in his God, faith in himself, and faith in his 
fellow man. 

At the official inspection of all the Lodges, the Master 
and his Wardens were informed of rulings that the Custodian 
of the Work had given us at the Annual Communication last 
July. The officers concerned were most receptive to this 
information and will take action where necessary. 

The degree work and business meetings of the Lodges 
are conducted in a most proficient manner and all the officers 
are conscious of their responsibilities and act accordingly. A 
number of the Lodges in the District request their officers 
to dress in formal attire which adds to the dignity of the 
work. 

The financial condition of all the Lodges is sound. The 
majority of the lodge rooms are most attractive and worthy 
of the degree work that is being conducted in them. Two 
Lodges in this District are considering building new lodge 
temples. 

The matter of the disturbing number of suspensions and 
resignations of the members of the Lodges in Ontario was 
brought to the attention of each Lodge and they were 
requested to study their own situation in order that this 
distressing matter could be rectified. In a number of cases 
Lodges have already started a program to bring the non- 
active Mason back "into the fold". 

Two year ago an idea was conceived where each 
Lodge in the District would, in turn, visit another Lodge and 
present a paper on a Masonic subject, at the same time 
passing on to them the "Travelling Square", a tangible token 
of their visit to the Lodge. It was gratifying to see that 
the Travelling Square is still travelling, and has created a 
greater bond of fellowship between our distant Lodges. 

The fraternal visiting of Lodges in Minnesota, U.S.A. 
with those of Algoma District is a most inspiring internation- 
al event. On October 24th I attended a meeting where 
members of T. W. Hugo Lodge of Duluth, Minnesota, and 



122 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

'Grand Marais Lodge of Grand Marais, Minnesota, were 
entertained. Among the distinguished visitors was the 
Deputy Grand Master of Minnesota. Throughout the year 
there were five such exchanges of international fraternal 
visits between the Lakehead Lodges and the Minnesota 
Lodges. This is becoming an annual event and many inter- 
esting side lights have developed from these exchange visits. 

Although at times, we, in the north western area of the 
Province, feel far removed from the more populated centre 
of Masonry in Ontario, these international visits, where 
Lodges travel 400 miles to exchange fraternal visits, and the 
"Travelling Square" which takes some Lodges 600 miles to 
exchange Masonic papers have done much to build an in- 
vincible bond of fellowship between our Lodges, and to 
make them realize that distance is no barrier in our great 
Fraternity. 

To the following I must express my sincere appreciation 
for their capable assistance during my term of office: — ■ 
Wor. Bro. R. H. Scowen, District Secretary; Wor. Bro. H. 
Hall, District Chairman of Masonic Education; Bro. Rev. A. 
F. Gavrel, District Chaplain; Bro. Sinclair Robb, Chairman of 
Blood Donors' Committee, and the Very Wor. Bros. J. A. 
Perry, and H. McLellan, Grand Stewards. 

It may be interesting to note that in performing the 
duties of the D.D.G.M. I travelled 2,700 miles over the ap- 
proximate 19,000 square mile area of Algoma District. 

H. J. COE, D.D.G.M. 



BRANT DISTRICT 

Such a wonderful year! No words of mine could ever 
completely express my feelings of joy, gratitude and ap- 
preciation for the privilege of representing our Grand 
Master for a year in Brant District, and I wish to express my 
thanks to the Most Worshipful Sir and all those brethren 
who made this appointment possible. 

My love and appreciation of our fraternity had its begin- 
ning in my earliest teenage, when I was deeply impressed by 
the many kindnesses shown to my father, by his brethren, 
through many years of sickness, and to have served as 
D.D.G.M. has far exceeded my greatest expectations. _ I 
sincerely trust that my endeavours have left some beneficial 
mark on the history of our Order. 

I have been thoroughly pleased to extend the greetings 
of the Grand Master on every possible occasion. After as- 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 123 

sociating with him, one cannot help but feel that, if such 
were possible, he would delight in greeting every brother 
personally. 

The enthusiasm of all the appointed District Officers 
has been very gratifying. 

Wor. Bro. C. A. Dickinson, District Secretary, accomp- 
anied me on my official visits to all the 14 Lodges and has 
been untiring in his attention to so many little details. 

Bro. Rev. F. A. Gilbert of Balfour United Church, 
District Chaplain, a member of Milverton Lodge, No. 478, and 
now residing in Brantford, accompanied me on as many oc- 
casions as his duties would permit, and to him we are in- 
debted for the complete arrangements for the District Divine 
Service in Colborne Street United Church on May 1st, with 
the participation of the Minister, Bro. Rev. J. W. Houston, 
and W. Bro. Rev. H. W. Strapp in the Service, at which the 
Sermon was titled "First Things First". It was gratifying 
to have the Fairview Choir render the Service of Music and 
the W. F. serve coffee at an hour of fellowship after the 
Service. 

Wor. Bro. L. Taylor, District Chairman of Masonic 
Education, has been quite active- and lectured at several 
Lodges in the District. 

Wor. Bro. M. G. Cook, as District Chairman of Blood 
Donors, has been quite persistent in his endeavours and while 
the recorded number of donors is not very extensive, the 
increased publicity given in lodge notices and at meetings 
must have benefited this worthy cause. 

A wonderful highlight in the year, was to receive Most 
Wor. Bro. Pitts at the Centennial Celebration of my Mother 
Lodge, Doric, No. 121, on December 9th, and to have held 
the office of D.D.G.M. on the occasion of his visit, accomp- 
anied by R.W. Bro. E. G. Dixon and R.W. Bro. George 
McQueen, is a memory I shall always humbly cherish. One 
sad note however will always be recalled by this date, for on 
that afternoon many of us, including the Grand Master, at- 
tended the funeral of Most Wor Bro. N. C. Hart. 

On May 4, with the assistance of Wor. Bro. R. McEwan, 
President of the Masters', Past Masters' and Wardens' As- 
sociation, and R.W. Bro. R. W. McFadden, I was pleased to 
conduct a District Lodge of Instruction in the Master Mason 
Degree, and such was the intense interest shown by a very 
large number of brethren present, that I regretted consider- 
ably not having arranged more Lodges of Instruction earlier 
in the year. My thanks I extend to R.W. Bro. Dr. M. C. 
Cain for his helpful advice during my visit to him in Toronto. 



124 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

I have been pleased to attend all the Lodge Divine 
Services to date, eight in number, and all have been well 
attended. On June 12 I regret having had to make the choice 
between two Services, both being held in the evening. 

All Lodges but one in the District conferred a degree on 
my visit of inspection; our Ritual and business on every oc- 
casion was well conducted, and it is certain that Masonry in 
our District is in good keeping. I have formed the opinion, 
however, from the remarks of several comparatively new 
members, that some definite insistence should be made that 
each Lodge frequently provides a three minute talk on some 
little point of Masonic history or interest. I feel that there 
is some definite reticence on the part of many members, in- 
cluding Past Masters, to prepare a talk of any duration, and 
I have stressed to many of our Masters the importance of 
frequent short talks. 

May I conclude by expressing my humble appreciation 
of the wonderful co-operation and fellowship I have ex- 
perienced throughout Brant District, and a prayer that the 
strong harmony of our District may long continue. 

S. E. PAINTER, D.D.G.M. 



BRUCE DISTRICT 

As my year as D.D.G.M. of Bruce District is rapidly 
drawing to its close I cannot help but feel humble and wish 
to express my gratitude to the Masons of Bruce who placed 
their faith in me one year ago in electing me to represent 
the Grand Master in their District for the year 1959-60. 

To me it has been a year of wonderful experience and 
satisfaction. Yes, it involves a great deal of time and effort, 
but everything worth while in this world takes just that. 

I was very fortunate to have had such a very capable 
and conscientious District Secretary in the person of Wor. 
Bro. W. C. Scott. In the early fall he was confined to 
hospital for a short period but since his return he has ac- 
companied me on every official visit at which time he ex- 
amined all lodge records and found everything in excellent 
condition, thanks to the capable lodge secretaries. Rev. Bro. 
Newton Reid of Forest Lodge, Chesley, accepted the appoint- 
ment as District Chaplain and carried out his duties diligent- 
ly. We are looking forward to our District Divine Service 
on June 12th. It is to be held in St. Andrews Presbyterian 
Church. Southampton, and we expect a turnout worthy of 
Bruce District. Wor. Bro. L. A. Smith ably served as Direct- 
or of Masonic Education. At our District meeting at Grand 



TORONTO. ONTARIO, 1960 125 

Lodge last July it was decided to appoint a District Treasurer 
and this position has been ably filled by Wor. Bro. W. J. 
Saunders. Both these brethren are members of St. Lawrence 
Lodge. 

Several of the Lodges held Ladies' Nights to which Mrs. 
De Long and I were invited, and on each occasion we were 
warmly received; a splendid spirit of friendship prevailed 
wherever we went. 

St. Lawrence Lodge, No. 131, is the first Lodge in Bruce 
District to reach its centenary and fittingly celebrated it 
with a Centennial Lodge Meeting on Friday, April 8 at which 
time members from most Lodges in the District were present, 
together with many visitors from outside the District. On 
this occasion I had the pleasure of presenting Bro. E. Boundy 
with his Veteran Jubilee Medal. The members of this Lodge 
looked splendid in their new gold trimmed regalia and were 
warmly congratulated by their brethren from the other 
District Lodges. Quite a number of presentations were made 
to the Lodge on this eventful night. 

On May 20 Bruce District tendered a reception to the 
Grand Master in combination with the Centennial Banquet of 
St. Lawrence Lodge. This was held in the Breakers Hotel on 
the shores of Lake Huron in Southampton where a bountiful 
dinner was served. Most Worshipful Brother Pitts gave a 
very inspiring address which was deeply appreciated by all 
present. 

On Novpmber 3 I was pleased to accept the invitation 
of R. Wor. Bro. Saxton, D.D.G.M. of North Huron District 
to accompany him on his official visit to his Mother Lodge. 
In January R.W. Bro. Treble invited me to attend Morning 
Star Lodge when his son was being initiated into Masonry. 
On this memorable night the chairs for the degree were all 
occupied by Past D.D.G.M's. and the lodge room was filled 
to capacity. 

On March 28 I visited Hanover Lodge, No. 432, and 
witnessed Wor. Bro. F. J. Tizzard receive with great pride 
the Sixty Year Pin for his Veteran Jubilee Medal and also 
his Fifty Year Past Masters' Jewel. 

I have been particularly pleased with the attendance at 
all my official visits to the Lodges and with the respect 
shown me as representative of the Grand Master. In my 
humble opinion it speaks well for Masonry in Bruce District 
and the great respect they have for the Grand Master and 
Grand Lodge. 

I only hope that I have been able in some small way to do 
half as much for Masonry in my District as Masonry has 



126 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

done for me, particularly this past year. The many new 
friends I have made and the innumerable kindnesses shown 
me will long remain in my memory. 

ROSS A. DE LONG, D.D.G.M. 



CHATHAM DISTRICT 

The thrill experienced on the 15th of July, 1959, when 
I was elected to represent Most Worshipful Brother C. McL. 
Pitts in Chatham District, has continued throughout my year. 
Being District Deputy Grand Master is an honour, a pleasure 
and a responsibility. I have enjoyed the honour and have 
tried to merit the confidence of the brethren in Chatham 
District by assuming the various responsibilities to the best 
of my ability. 

I was accompanied on all my visits by Wor. Bro. Geoi'ge 
W. Webb, the District Secretary, who reported favourably 
on the records of fourteen Lodges. There are fifteen Lodges 
in the District and, therefore, it is my unpleasant duty to 
report that the books, records and monies of the Treasurer 
of Hammond Lodge, No. 327, during 1959 were carelessly 
handled. 

It was a pleasure to have Bro. Rev. David W. Williams 
as the District Chaplain, and Wor. Bro. John M. Burnett as 
the Supervisor of Masonic Education. Masonic Education 
has played an important part in the programme of the Lodges 
in Chatham District and the interest in this regard reflects 
great credit on the efforts of the Grand Lodge Committee on 
Masonic Education under the chairmanship of Rt. Wor. Bro. 
B. B. Foster. 

There appears to be an earnest desire on the part of all 
Lodges in the District to foster and encourage the best and 
highest standards in the exemplification of the Work in the 
several degrees and I was generally impressed with the 
sincerity of the work. 

On Saturday, November 14, I assisted M. Wor. Bro. 
Nelson C. Hart in the Dedication of the New Temple of 
Lome Lodge, No. 282, Glencoe. 

My wife and I will be forever grateful for the kind 
hospitality we received as honoured guests at several Ladies' 
Nights. Another evening that will be long remembered was 
the banquet and reception held to honour Most Worshipful 
Brother Pitts in Windsor on Tuesday, March 29. 

Our District Divine Service was held in Trinity United 
Church, Wallaceburg, on Sunday, May 29. Over 350 Masons 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 127 

attended together with another 150 Masons' wives, children 
and friends. Bro. Rev. Harry M. Denning, B.A., B.D., of 
St. Andrew's United Church, Chatham, delivered an inspiring 
sermon on "Perception". I was assisted by Bro. Rev. W. G. 
Wylie, Rt. Wor. Bro. B. B. Foster, Rt. Wor. Bro. J. H, 
Burnett and Very Wor. Bro. Verne W. Nurse. A Masonic 
Choir, consisting of thirty male voices, enriched this special 
occasion. The turn-out was, by far, the largest Masonic 
Parade in Wallaceburg's history. My thanks to all those 
who participated and attended. 

H. B. SANDS, D.D.G.M. 

EASTERN DISTRICT 

It has been a very pleasant and rewarding experience, 
during the past year, making official visits throughout the 
Eastern District and enjoying the friendship and cordiality 
of the brethren. To the Wor. Masters, Officers and members 
of the Lodges who made it so I express my gratitude. 

Before commencing the term as District Deputy Grand 
Master I attended a class of instruction held in the Masonic 
Temple, Brockville. Here duties pertaining to the office and 
instructions were given by the Custodian of the Work, Most 
Wor. Bro. Martyn. I wish to sincerely thank him for the 
valuable assistance received and to humbly offer him my 
congratulations for adopting this procedure. 

I appointed Wor. Bro. D. J. Mackintosh, District Secre- 
tary, and Bro. Rev. John W. Bell, District Chaplain. These 
brethren, whenever possible, accompanied me on my official 
visits and their support has been greatly appreciated. 

I officially visited each of the nineteen Lodges of the 
District at least once and the excellence of the work was 
quite impressive. It was pleasant and encouraging to be 
accompanied on practically all these visits by past and 
present Grand Lodge officers. 

Eastern District was greatly honoured by having three 
official visits from the Grand Master. He visited Hawkes- 
bury, his mother lodge, and presented Very Wor. Bro. A. P. 
Rutherford with regalia as Grand Superintendent of Works. 
He was officially received by Cornwall Lodge, No. 125, at 
their Centennial Anniversary, given honourary membership 
and registered as their one thousandth member, Later, at -a 
banquet as guest speaker, he delivered an eloquent address 
which was much appreciated. He officially presided at the 
dedication ceremony of the beautiful new temple of Farran- 
Ault Lodge, No. 256, at Ingleside. Here again at the banquet 
he gave a very inspiring address and was ably supported by 



128 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

the Assistant Grand Secretary and Supervisor of Benevolence, 
R.W. Bro. McQueen. 

Eastern District was further honoured in having Rt. Wor. 
Bro. B. B. Foster, Chairman of the Grand Lodge Committee 
on Masonic Education, as guest speaker at the annual banquet 
of the Past Masters' and Wardens' Association in Cornwall. 
It was generally conceded that the Masonic Education pro- 
gramme benefited greatly by this visit and very instructive 
address. 

A number of the Lodges held Divine Service all of which 
were very well attended. The District Divine Service was 
held on May 29th, in Knox Presbyterian Church, Vankleek 
Hill, over four hundred being present, representing nearly 
all the Lodges and many from outside the District. The 
Service was conducted by the District Chaplain, Bro. Rev. 
John W. Bell, assisted by the Assistant Grand Chaplain Very 
Wor. Bro. Robertson Millar, with Wor. Bro. Wm. Pettit as 
Organist and Choir Director. 

May I close my report of this years' activities in Eastern 
District by expressing my sincere appreciation to all the 
brethren who so ably assisted me. 

D. S. MacPHEE, D.D.G.M. 



FRONTENAC DISTRICT 

Tt has been a pleasure and an honour for me to have 
served as D.D.G.M. of Frontenac District, during the past 
year. 

I consider that I was particularly fortunate in my choice 
of District Officers, in the following; District Secretary, W. 
Bro. Francis T. Welbanks; District Chaplain, Bro. Rev. H. C. 
Seeker; Director of Masonic Education, R.W. Bro. T. J. 
Donnelly; and Bro. Leonard E. Ede as District Chairman of 
the Blood Donors' Committee. These brethren have been 
very faithful in accompanying me on almost all of my 
official visits. 

Living as I do on Amherst Island, which is separated 
from the mainland by three miles of water, perhaps no other 
D.D.G.M. has ever had to use such diversity of means of 
transportation. With no ferry service at nights, it was 
necessary to use a motor launch on many occasions and when 
the ice formed it became even more treacherous and un- 
certain. However I was able to make all of my scheduled 
official visits to the 18 Lodges within the District, and on 
each occasion it was a joy and a pleasure to be received so 
hospitably. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 129 

On the majority of my visits, degree work was ex- 
emplified by the Lodges in a very capable manner, and I am 
pleased to report that, throughout the District, the Lodges 
are very fortunate to have a group of capable and enthusi- 
astic officers, who are upholding the highest traditions of 
Masonry. One or two of the Lodges seem to be having 
difficulty in attracting candidates, a condition which, I hope, 
will not be of Jong duration. During all of my visits I tried 
to emphasize the necessity of having some form of Masonic 
Education and the desirability of inter-lodge visits, as well 
as trying to impress upon the Lodges the importance of pro- 
tecting their buildings adequately with insurance and of pro- 
viding themselves with some place of safekeeping for their 
records which are irreplaceable. I was very much impressed 
with the very fine lodge premises with which our Lodges have 
provided themselves and also that the majority of these are 
owned by the Lodges. This reflects the spirit of devotion 
and sacrifice, which has pervaded the membership of these 
Lodges. 

One of the highlights of my year was the celebration of 
the 100th anniversary of the institution of my Mother Lodge, 
Maple Leaf, No. 119, Bath, and it was a pleasure and privilege 
for me to be asked to present the officers of the Lodge with 
the new gold trimmed regalia, at which time I attempted 
to give a bit of the historical background of this grand old 
institution, which for so long has had the reputation of being 
located in the very "cradle of Masonry". I certainly owe a 
debt of gratitude to my fellow members from Maple Leaf 
Lodge who so conscientiously supported me by their attend- 
ance on my visits. I shall never forget that some of these 
members never missed one of the visits and the moral 
support given me in this way was most gratifying. 

One of the sad happenings of the Masonic year in this 
District was the untimely passing to the Grand Lodge Above, 
of M. Wor. Bro. John A. McEae, who served as Grand Master 
in 1941-43. M.W. Bro. McRae has long been a tower of 
strength to Masonry in this District as well as to Grand 
Lodge. He was a guide and a counsellor and his distinguished 
scholastic career, coupled with his devotion to his church and 
his service to his community, should long be an inspiration 
to us. The loss of three other Past Grand Masters, during 
this year, has been most depressing. 

The highlight of our year was the official visit to this 
District of the Grand Master, M.W. Bro. C. M. Pitts, who 
was received in the traditional "Frontenac District Manner", 
in open Lodge, in the Masonic Temple, Kingston, where Royal 
Edward, No. 585, was the host Lodge. The large represent- 
ation from the Lodges throughout the District, as well as the 
neighbouring districts, bore testimony of the high esteem in 
which M.W. Bro. Pitts is held in this District, where he is no 



130 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

stranger and of the degree of pride felt in having a Mason 
from the Eastern section of our Grand jurisdiction as our 
Grand Master. We were also honoured to have, accompanying 
M.W. Bro. Pitts, V. W. Bro. B. Lishman, Grand Director of 
Ceremonies, R.W. Bro. Earl McKeever, Grand Registrar, as 
well as numerous Grand Stewards. 

My wife and I, as well as the District Secretary and his 
wife, appreciate the numerous invitations received to join 
the Lodges at their "Ladies' Nights'' and, while we were not 
able to attend all of these, we certainly did enjoy the "Super 
Hospitality" extended to us when we were able to be present. 

I attended a number of the Church Services, held by the 
various Lodges within the District, as well as some of those 
in the neighbouring Districts of St. Lawrence and Prince 
Edward. While I write this, we are looking forward to our 
own District Service to be held on Sunday next in St. Luke's 
Church, Kingston, arranged by the District Chaplain, at which 
the Grand Chaplain, Rev. M. G. B. Williams will be the guest 
speaker. 

Finally, while I have had a busy year, the wonderful 
co-operation and support given me by everyone with whom 
I associated and especially by the Past D.D.G.M's. have assist- 
ed me materially, and I extend my sincere thanks for the 
privilege of serving this District during the year. 

A. BRUCE CAUGHEY, D.D.G.M. 
GEORGIAN DISTRICT 

It is not only as a duty, but also as a pleasure that I 
submit to you, Most Worshipful Sir, my report for your con- 
sideration. 

I am indeed grateful to my brethren of Seven Star 
Lodge, No. 285, for having proposed my name for this office, 
and I, too, express my gratitude to the brethren of Georgian 
District for electing me by acclamation, and to you, Most 
Worshipful Sir, for the confirmation of my election. 

It pleased me to appoint as my District Secretary, a 
most capable and active Past Master of my own Lodge, Wor. 
Bro. C. Grant Awbury. Wor. Bro. Awbury accompanied me 
on all, except one, of my official visits. His willing assistance 
and assiduity to the duties of his office most assuredly light- 
ened my duties. Brother, the Reverend, J. P. Gordon, of 
Manito, No. 90, proved my choice of District Chaplain to be 
a popular one. He, too, accompanied me on all but one of 
my official visits and endeared himself to all who met him. 
I feel that he enriched that cement which binds us all to- 
gether in our fraternity. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 131 

Early in my year I appointed Wor. Bro. Gordon Mallion 
of Tottenham Lodge and President of Georgian District 
Masonic Officers' Association, as the District Director for 
Masonic Education. Being aware of his unbounded energies 
in Masonic endeavours, my choice was easy to make. 

Once again our Officers' Association is being rejuvinated 
under Wor. Bro. Mallion and certain advances were made in 
the field of Masonic Education. Wor. Bro. Mallion, assisted 
by R. Wor. Bro. Shannon, formed and directed a Senior 
Wardens' Degree Team, as well as a panel of well-skilled 
Masonic speakers. The services of the Team and speakers 
are available to the various Lodges upon request. Enquiries 
and reports from several Lodges indicate that in most in- 
stances Masonic Education takes its rightful place in the 
lodge agendas. 

In December, 1959, I was requested by R. Wor. Bro. 
Shannon to appoint a Director for the Masonic Blood Donors' 
Clinic, held in Barrie, 27th January, 1960. I am indeed grate- 
ful to Wor. Bro. J. M. Heslip, of Nitetis Lodge, Creemore, for 
his very fine efforts and the capable manner in which he 
administered this project. 

I visited each of the twenty Lodges at least once and I 
was received with wirm ho c m>nli+v nnd in the true Masonic 
manner. I witnessed each of the three degrees conferred and 
it was apparent to me that Lodges are exercising due caution 
in the selection of candidates. Several Lodges allocate the 
work in such a manner that by the time an Officer reaches the 
Master's chair he will have a commanding knowledge of the 
ritual. The work in most Lodges was of a high calibre and, 
when I deemed i* necessary to criticize, my observations were 
received in the manner in which they were offered. It was 
with pleasure I noticed many young Masons at work. 

The majority of the Lodges are sound financially and 
those that might be considered shaky are taking the necessary 
action to strengthen their positions. 

On 15th May, 1960, at 3 p.m. a District Divine Service 
was held for the brethren and their families in the Holy 
Trinity Chapel, Camp Borden. It pleased me to see that 
almost 400 attended this Service. The Grand Chaplain 
ministered to many veterans of the two World Wars, who 
were pleased to worship together and be able to once again 
view their old training grounds. As indicated in the sum- 
mons, Lodges of this District also hold their own Annual 
Divine Services. 

Amid all the happiness that abounds in Georgian 
District in general, Caledonian and Orillia Lodges in partic- 



132 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

ular suffered severe losses, in the passing of R. Wor. Bro. 
George F. Dudley and Wor. Bro. Thomas Sansom. 

In conclusion, I express to all brethren of the District 
my sincere thanks for their loyal support, and on behalf of 
my successor I solicit the same fine support extended to me. 

ROBERT N. WALKER, D.D.G.M. 



GREY DISTRICT 

This report brings to a close my most interesting, 
pleasurable and inspiring year in Masonry. As the year ends 
I have many very pleasant memories of the evenings spent 
on my official visits to the twelve Lodges in Grey District. 
No one could ask for a better reception than was accorded 
me on these occasions. The friendly greetings, the fraternal 
atmosphere and the bon voyage can not help but strengthen 
the knowledge that Masonry is flourishing. 

If my year as District Deputy Grand Master has been a 
successful one, and I trust that it has, it was in no small 
measure due to the assistance I received from Wor. Bro. Joe 
Greenwood as District Secretary. His duties were carried 
out with the utmost skill and devotion. Wor. Bro. Crawford 
Curtis was appointed District Chairman of Masonic Education. 
During- the year he stressed the value of Masonic instruction 
in each Lodge. On April 8th a Lodge of Instruction was held 
at which Rt. Wor. Bro. Frank Shannon of Barrie supervised 
the work exemplified. Anyone who attended this meeting 
could not help but feel that although we strive for perfection 
in our ritual expert advice is of invaluable assistance in 
helping to maintain a high standard. 

Bro., Rev. J. M. Dobson accepted the appointment of 
District Chaplain. He conducted the District Divine Service 
held in St. Paul's Church, Shelburne, on June 12th at which 
there was a good attendance. 

When I took office in 1959 I had high hopes of forming 
a Masters', Wardens' and Past Masters' Association for our 
District. A district meeting was called at which time the 
subject was thoroughly discussed. It was felt that the 
matter should be presented to each Lodge and further dis- 
cussed before a final decision was reached. To this end a 
letter was sent to all Lodges explaining the purpose and 
scope of such an association. Each Lodge was requested 
to come to the District Meeting at Grand Lodge prepared to 
vote on the matter. Having progressed thus far I can only 
hope that my successor may carry the matter to completion 
to the satisfaction of all concerned. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 133 

Blood Donor clinics were held in several communities 
throughout the District. The brethren were urged to avail 
themselves of the opportunity to take part in this humani- 
tarian work. 

The highlight of my year as D.D.G.M. came on May 19th 
with the official visit of Most Worshipful Grand Master 
Clarence McLeod Pitts to the District. This was combined 
with the Centennial celebration of Pythagoras Lodge, No. 
137, Meaford. A very delicious banquet was enjoyed at which 
Grand Master Pitts was the guest speaker. 

My duties during the year were lightened to no small 
degree by the assistance of my immediate predecessor Rt. 
Wor. Bro. Ran Brady as well as Rt. Wor. Bro. Sudden and 
other Past District Deputies of the District. They, at all 
times, were willing to give of their experience and help in 
every way possible to make my term of office more pleasant. 

During the year Grev District suffered a severe loss 
with the passing of Very Wor. Bro. Morley Wright. Morley, 
as he was known to everyone, wa? a cornerstone in the build- 
ing of Masonry and in spreading its gospel wherever he went. 
The fact that over 300 Masons attended a Masonic Service 
in Mount Forest from Grey District as well as Wellington, 
where he was also a member, attest to the esteem with which 
he was held. 

Masonry in this District is progressing with the times as 
evidenced by the plans of two Lodges, Arthur and Mount 
Forest to erect new temples. Other Lodges also have tent- 
ative preparations for the provision of new accomodation. 
From the efficiency of the Lodge Secretaries and the skill 
of the Masters T have no hesitation in saying that Masonry 
is in good condition throughout Grey District. 

As my term of office grows to a close may I record my 
heartfelt thanks for the honour accorded me. I trust my 
stewardship has proved worthy of your confidence. 

BRUCE R. R. FIFE, D.D.G.M. 



HAMILTON DISTRICT "A" 

Tt is my privilege to submit herewith my report as 
District Deputy Grand Master of Hamilton District "A" for 
the past year. 

The 19 Lodges in the District were officially inspected, a 
degree being witnessed at each meeting. As is customary in 
this District, I was accompanied on each visit by another 
Lodge of District "A". I found that lodge business was 



134 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

being handled expeditiously, allowing the visiting Lodge and 
myself to be received at an early hour. The work was 
uniformly good, the Master being assisted by many of the 
younger members as well as by Past Masters and Officers. 
The sincerity of those taking part contributed to impressive 
degrees which were fully appreciated by the candidates. 

Early in September a meeting with the Masters and 
Wardens was held at which their co-operation was requested, 
an outline of what was expected of them given, details of 
procedure discussed and emphasis placed on the undesir- 
ability of unduly prolonged and late meetings. I am happy 
to report that I received the utmost co-operation, the major- 
ity of the meetings ending by 11.15 p.m. and no meeting later 
than 11.30 p.m. 

The District Secretary, Wor. Bro. C. Christopher Piercy, 
inspected the records of each Lodge, reported that he had 
received every assistance from the Secretaries, that books, 
records and registers were carefully and neatly kept, and 
that the financial position of each Lodge appeared to be 
sound. Lodge reports show suspensions for non-payment 
of dues low, no suspensions for other causes, benevolent 
assistance granted wherever need was shown and a general 
increase in membership. 

A very successful Lodge of Instruction on the ceremony 
of Installation was held on November 24th in Burlington 
Lodge, with Most Wor. Bro. H. L. Martyn, Custodian, in 
attendance. The lodge room was completely filled with 
representatives of all Lodges in the Hamilton Districts and 
some from outside Districts. 

I earnestly recommend that a Lodge of Instruction on 
some phase of the Work be held each year in the District. 
While the ritual and ceremonies are not Masonry but are 
only the means by which its lessons are taught, deviations do 
creep in, and unless periodically corrected, the lessons may 
be lost or changed. 

During the year the District was well served by Bro. 
the Rev. A. Lome MacKay, B.A., B.D. as District Chaplain, 
Rt. Wor. Bro. W. L. Sommerville, P.D.D.G.M. as Supervisor 
of Masonic Education and Wor. Bro. Fred Scott as Chairman 
of the Blood Donors' Committee. 

Three well-attended and interesting District Meetings 
were held on Masonic Education with many members partici- 
pating in the programs. The Secretaries of Districts "A" 
and "B" Lodges held a very productive meeting to discuss 
procedures, interpretations and to exchange experiences. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 135 

All Lodges were approached concerning' the Remembrance 
Memorial Fund and have taken action. 

Many Lodges held Divine Services and, in addition, there 
were two District Church Services. 

The Past Masters' Association and the Masters' and 
Wardens' Association are two useful and active organizations 
in the District. They have given effective co-operation in 
all district activities. 

Because of illness I was unable to attend the scheduled 
Official Inspection of Corinthian Lodge in January and on 
very short notice Rt. Wor. Bro. H. Martindale, D.D.G.M. 
of District "B" cheerfully and adequately performed this 
task. 

Among the highlights of the year were; the visit of the 
Grand Master to Acacia Lodere when I had the honour of 
presenting the Masters of District "A" to him; the meeting 
celebrating- the 50th Anniversarv of Electric Lodge; a visit 
to the Lodge of Strict Observance on the occasion of the 
visit of St. John's Lodere, London: the visit of Tuscan Lodge 
to Red Jacket Lodge. Lockport, N.Y.; the meeting of Wash- 
ington Lodere, No. 240. Buffalo. NY. at which the Grand 
Master of Masons in the State of New York presented a 60 
Year Membership Palm to Rt. Wor. Bro. Charles D. Brough- 
ton, D.D.. Senior Grand Chaplain of the Grand Lodge of the 
State of New York; and the 100th Anniversary of St. Clair 
Lodge, Milton. 

One of the most -pleasant activities of the year was 
attendance, with mv wife, at the Annual Ladies' Nights of 
the Lodges in the Hamilton Districts. These were, without 
exception, spritely and happy occasions. 

In conclusion, I again express to the officers of Grand 
Lode-e and to the members of the District my sincere ap- 
preciation and thanks for the many courtesies extended to 
me during the year. 

JOHN E. PIERCY, D.D.G.M. 



HAMILTON DISTRICT "B" 

Fulfilling the office of District Deputy Grand Master has 
been a most exciting and pleasant experience and one that I 
will remember always. 

One of mv first duties after assuming; office was to 
appoint Wor. Bro. William Williamson as District Secretary. 



136 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

He has discharged his duties in a most capable manner and 
has been most faithful and loyal to me throughout the year. 
Wor. Bro. Williamson reports that the records of the Secret- 
aries are in excellent condition. 

Bro. Rev. Edward Shaw was appointed District Chaplain 
with Wor. Bro. Clarence Young, his assistant. Wor. Bro. 
Samuel Craig carried out the duties of Chairman of Masonic 
Education, while Bro. Mervyn Bolstad, as District Chairman 
of the Blood Donors' Committee, reported over three hundred 
regular Blood Donors donating blood in the District. 

I have made an official visit of inspection to each of 
the twenty Lodges in this District. The reception at all 
Lodges was warm and generous. 

During these visits I was greatly impressed with the 
high calibre of degree work being carried on in the District. 
In every instance the officers, assisted by Past Masters, 
carried out their duties most efficiently and with sincerity 
and dignity. 

There were two Divine Services held during the year 
by the combined Hamilton Districts under the auspices of 
the Masters' and Wardens' Association as well as a number 
of services held by individual Lodges throughout the District. 
The attendance at all these Services was most gratifying 
indeed. 

Several Fifty-Year Medals were presented to brethren 
during the year and to these we certainly owe a debt of 
gratitude for their long association in Masonry. The real 
pillars of Masonry are not necessarily the monarchs or the 
professors or those influential in the social or business 
world, but rather those who are faithful in their attendance 
and diligent in their work. Many of these brethren who have 
received their Fifty-Year Medals have proven to be the real 
pillars of Masonry in their respective Lodges. 

Most Lodges in the District held a Ladies' Night and I 
had the pleasure of attending all of these functions where it 
gave a further opportunity of associating with the brethren 
and their wives. 

This District enjoys very active Past Masters' Masters' 
and Wardens' Associations and I feel these Associations are 
performing an inmportant function and are making a real 
contribution to Masonry. All meetings have been exception- 
ally well attended. 

One of the saddest duties I had was to attend several 
Funeral Services held for brethren of this District who had 
ascended to the Grand Lodge Above. Many of these de- 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 137 

ceased brethren played a very important part in Masonry 
in their respective Lodges. Their contribution to Masonry 
is a real challenge to us all, a challenge that we, too, during 
our Masonic years, may make a similar contribution, so that 
when we are .called upon to hand over the torch entrusted to 
our care, we may hand it over with the light burning brightly 
and the wick well trimmed. 

This report would not be complete without thanking the 
Grand Secretary, Rt. Wor. Bro. Ewart Dixon, for his kindness 
and assistance to me. Bro. Dixon's great wealth of Masonic 
knowledge and wisdom is always available to all members of 
the Craft and was generously given to me whenever requested. 

In conclusion, may I say that I appreciate so much the 
genuine and sincere co-operation which I have received 
during the year. The many friendships which I have made and 
the kindness of so many brethren will always remain fixed 
in my memory. To all the brethren in Hamilton Masonic 
District "B", I extend my sincere appreciation for the great 
privilege which has been mine. 

HARRISON A. MARTINDALE, D.D.G.M. 



LONDON DISTRICT 

It is a pleasure for me to submit my report on the con- 
dition of Masonry in the London District as my official year 
as D.D.G.M. draws to a close. 

I am indebted to the brethren of Mt. Olivet Lodge, No. 
300, for -proposing me as a candidate for this office and to 
the brethren of the London District for the kindly consider- 
ation given Mt. Olivet Lodge in electing me D.D.G.M. It has 
been one of the most interesting, busiest and happiest years 
of my life. The cordial reception accorded me in each of 
the twenty-four Lodges in the District shows the esteem 
and loyalty the brethren have for the Grand Master and 
Grand Lodge. 

My first official act was to appoint Wor. Bro. Cecil V. 
Fox, District Secretary. He accompanied ,me on all my 
official visits and was a tower of strength to me throughout 
the year. To him I wish to express my sincere thanks for his 
untiring assistance. 

All the Lodges in the District were officially visited by 
me during my term of office and several of them on special 
occasions. I found the work to be uniform throughout the 
District and of high standard. All the Lodges were found to 
have their records in good condition. Most of the Lodges 



13S GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

own their own quarters and I was impressed by the improve- 
ments and renovations that had been made during the year. 

I 
On my Official Visit to King Solomon's Lodge, No. 378, 
I had the honour of presenting a Fifty-Year Medal to Wor. 
Bro. Joseph Holliday. 

The District Divine Service was held in Metropolitan 
United Church, London, on May 1st, with four hundred 
Masons attending. The Service was in charge of the District 
Chaplain, Eev. Wor. Bro. Lloyd J. Coates who is the Wor. 
Master of Moffat Lodge, No. 399, and Assistant Minister of 
Metropolitan United Church. Wor. Bro. Coates chose as his 
text for the sermon "On level ground" and delivered a most 
inspiring address. In addition to the District Service, it was 
my privilege to attend Divine Services held by practically 
all the Lodges in the District. 

Most Lodges in the District held a Ladies' night and Mrs. 
Sutherland and I had the pleasure of attending most of 
these functions. 

The District Educational Committee was under the able 
chairmanship of Wor. Bro. Robert Cater. He and his com- 
mittee were very active throughout the year and aided many 
of the Lodges with their work The highlight of the year was 
the District Lodge of Instruction sponsored by Acacia Lodge, 
No. 580, on March 30th, when the Second Degree was ex- 
emplified. Wor. Bro. Cater acted as Master and the other 
offices were filled by the Senior Wardens of the District. 
The degree presented was as near perfect as possible. Most 
of the Lodges have Educational Committees and all are doing 
excellent work. My sincere thanks to Rt. Wor. Bro. Jack 
Irvine, Rt. Wor. Bro. J. J. Talman, Rt. Wor. Bro. Harry 
Peers and Rt. Wor. Bro. Wm. Coxon for their help through- 
out the year. 

The District was saddened by the passing of Most Wor. 
Bro. Nelson Collins Hart, our beloved Past Grand Master, on 
December 7th, 1959. We have lost a talented brother and 
one whose Masonic record will long be remembered. We also 
mourn the loss of Rt. Wor. Bro. Wilbur Hamilton Dunlop 
who was D.D.G.M. in 1917-18. Our sympathy goes out to 
their families and to the families of the many other Masons 
who were summoned to the Grand Lodge Above during the 
year. 

The Past Masters', Masters' and Wardens' Association is 
very active and held three meetings during the year. At 
the February meeting an interesting and informative address 
was given on the second D.D.G.M. of the London District by 
the Grand Senior Warden, Rt. Wor. Bro. J. J. Talman. At 



TORONTO. ONTARIO, 1960 139 

the annual dinner, held in Port Stanley, on April 27th, Rt. 
Wor. Bro. Jas. A. Robb and Rt. Wor. Bro. A, B. Clinton were 
honoured for their work as Secretary-Treasurer and Chairman 
of the London District Blood Donors' Service. The Visiting 
Committee is making one visit a month to the Dearness 
Home for Senior Citizens where fourteen of our brethren 
are now living. My thanks to the Present and Past Grand 
Lodge Officers who were in attendance on my official visits 
and to the Wor. Masters of the District of whom eighteen to 
twenty-two were present on each occasion. 

Masonry in the London District is prospering. There 
are opportunities for the formation of new Lodges to serve 
the District more effectively. Annexation will take place 
on January 1st, 1961, giving the city of London a population 
of one hundred and fifty thousand. I would recommend that 
the London District be divided into two districts and that 
consideration be given to the building of a new temple in the 
city. 

J. CRAMFORD SUTHERLAND, D.D.G.M. 



MUSKOKA— PARRY SOUND DISTRICT 

To have been the District Deputy Grand Master for 
Muskoka-Parry Sound District during the past year has been 
a wonderful experience. My year of office has been made 
pleasant by the sincere co-operation and sympathy and 
understanding of the Lodges in this District and the cordial 
and gracious reception accorded me on my official visit to 
each of the eight Lodges was most gratifying. Due respect 
was paid the Grand Master and all Grand Lodge Officers on 
each visit. I found the work of all the Lodges in the District 
exceptionally good and carried out according to the ritual as 
closely as was humanly possible. 

I appointed Wor. Bro. Fred Freeman as my District 
Secretary; V. Wor. Bro. Ven. Archdeacon J. B. Lindsell as 
the District Chaplain; Bro. Arthur Consoul as the Chairman 
of Masonic Education; and Wor. Bro. H. A. Fisher as Chair- 
man of the Blood Donors' Committee. I was very fortunate 
as they were all a tower of strength in planning and carry- 
ing on the work. On my first official visit, which was to 
Powassan Lodge, Powassan, I had the pleasure of presenting 
Past Master's Jewels to two of their Past Masters. 

On my official visit to Unity Lodge, Huntsville, in Jan- 
uary two of the members of their Lodge were highly honored. 
Rt. Wor. Bro. H. E. Rice received his Jewel as fifty years a 
Past Master. 



140 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

It is with regret that I report the death of three of the 
most distinguished members of this District during the year, 
Rt. Wor. Bro. Preston Gerhart of Unity Lodge, Huntsville, 
Rt. Wor. Bro. Harry Hayward of Algonquin Lodge, Emsdale, 
and V. Wor. Bro. Donald T. Johnston of Strong Lodge, 
Sundridge. 

The District Church Service was held in St. James 
Anglican Church, Gravenhurst, on Sunday, June 19 and we 
had a large number of Masons present. Rt. Wor. Bro. Canon 
Collaton of Sault Ste. Marie gave a very excellent address. 

In conclusion, I wish to thank the many Masons in this 
District who have done so much towards making my year 
of office so pleasant as well as contributing towards the well 
being and advancement of Masonry. 

w. e. Mcdonald, d.d.g.m. 



NIAGARA DISTRICT "A" 

The duties and privileges of serving as District Deputy 
Grand Master certainly lift one's life out of the commonplace 
for the year. 

The efficiency of the District Officers, their kindness 
and helpfulness were great lessons in Masonic co-operation. 
Wor. Bro. John M. Lee, District Secretary, fulfilled his 
duties in a most capable manner. Enthusiastic expressions 
of approval were heard on all sides regarding Wor. Bro. 
Lee's untiring efforts for the District. Wor. Bro. F. R. 
Allison, Supervisor of Masonic Education, proved his good 
work by putting into circulation over sixty copies of the 
Manual for Masonic Instructors and Students. Wor. Bro. 
Allison's short talks on the value of this Manual were very 
effective. Bro. the Rev. James A. Newman, District Chaplain, 
served his District for a second term with the true dignity 
of a cultured Masonic scholar. 

The Constituting and Consecrating of Grantham Lodge, 
No. 697, on Monday, September 21st, was particularly inter- 
esting to the whole Distrct. Most Wor. Bro. H. L. Martyn 
was the presiding officer on this occasion. The inspiring 
address delivered by Most Wor. Bro. Martyn was deeply 
appreciated by all present. 

On October 6th, Ivy Lodge, No. 115, Beamsville, held 
Dedicatory Services commemorating one hundred years of 
Masonry. On October 30th the members of Ivy Lodge held 
their Centennial Banquet at Prudhomme's Garden Centre. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 141 

Rt. Wor. Bro. the Hon. James N. Allan was the guest 
speaker for this delightful event. 

The Masters' and Wardens' Association held their first 
meeting on October 20th in the St. Catharines Masonic 
Temple. Rt. Wor. Bro. George J. McQueen was the guest 
speaker and gave a comprehensive account of Masonic 
Benevolence in Ontario. 

The Wor. Masters and Secretaries were excellent in all 
phases of district planning. Their immediate response to all 
enquiries made it possible to have our Official Visits listed 
early and accurately. 

On Official Visitations, each Lodge exemplified the 
degree requested. The degree work in every case showed 
that all Officers in the District were taking their Masonic 
duties very seriously. 

The District Secretary found the books of the Lodges 
neatly kept and the proceedings well recorded. Attendance 
and Masonic interest are showing improvement. The temples, 
lodge rooms and furniture are well maintained. 

All Lodges in the District held "At Homes". Mrs. 
MacDonald, Mrs. Lee, the District Secretary and I thoroughly 
enjoyed the warmth and friendly atmosphere of these pleas- 
ant evenings. 

On Friday, March 18th, in the Council Chamber in St. 
Catharines, a unique service was held. Rt. Wor. Bro. R. W. 
Treleaven, Deputy Grand Master, presented a. silver trowel 
to the city of St. Catharines. Mayor Bro. W. R. Bald re- 
ceived the trowel on behalf of the city. This trowel had been 
presented to Sir Allan McNab, Grand Master of Canada 
West, when he laid the corner stone of the Town Hall in 
1848. The trowel had been picked up in an antique shop in 
Australia. The engraving on the trowel told its story. The 
Grand Secretary of Western Australia sent the trowel to Rt. 
Wor. Bro. E. G. Dixon who directed its return to the City of 
St. Catharines. The Wor. Masters of the District and many 
members attended this presentation. 

The Masters' and Wardens' Association, at the request of 
Seymour Lodge, No. 277, Port Dalhousie, held an enlighten- 
ing Lodge of Instruction on April 7th. This was a well- 
attended District Meeting presided over by the District 
Deputy Grand Master. 

Wor. Bro. C. R. Buss of Mountain Lodge, Thorold, as 
Chairman of the Blood Donors' Committee, put forth every 
effort to bring: the importance of this work to the attention 
of the members of the District. 



142 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

The individual Church Services were well attended. The 
District Divine Service was outstanding. This Service was 
held Sunday evening, May 1st, in St. Paul Street United 
Church, St. Catharines, under the auspices of St. George's 
Lodge, No. 15. The address "A Goodly Heritage" by Rev. 
Bro. G. P. Forsey, M.A, was most inspiring. The St. Cath- 
arines Masonic Choir was in charge of the music and helped 
make this Service a real district achievement. 

My year as District Deputy Grand Master was most 
gratifying because of the loyal support of Past Grand Lodge 
Officers, and all lodge members in the District. To have had 
the opportunity of being part of this splendid Masonic spirit 
has been a great honour, and for this, I humbly and sincerely 
thank the kindly Masons of Niagara District "A". 

W. W. MacDONALD, D.D.G.M. 



NIAGARA DISTRICT "B" 

I am pleased to report that Masonry in Niagara District 
"B" is in a very excellent condition. Besides officially visit- 
ing each Lodge, I have attended each on other occasions to 
witness degrees which, in all cases, were conferred in an 
excellent manner by the Masters, officers and brethren. 

It was indeed a pleasure to appoint Wor. Bro. F. E. 
Wilson, District Secretary; Wor. Bro. F. D. Bowering, District 
Chairman of Masonic Education: and Wor. Bro. Rev. W. 
D. Goodger, District Chaplain. These brethren were a tower 
of strength to me during the year. The District Secretary 
accompanied me on all official visits. He checked the lodge 
records for amounts of insurance, number of suspensions, and 
also acted as District Chairman of the Blood Donors' Com- 
mittee. The District Chairman of Masonic Education spoke 
on twelve occasions on some subject of general interest. The 
District Chaplain gave inspiring messages on our official 
visits, tending to bring the Church and the Craft closer 
together. 

There were many outstanding events during the year. 
Among them was the burning of the mortgage at Merritt 
Lodge, No. 168, Welland. Most Wor. Bro. T. H. Simpson, 
who officiated at the Dedication of the Building in 1946 
when he was the Deputy Grand Master, was the guest of 
honour. 

Three Veteran Jubilee Medals were presented during the 
year. The recipients were Wor. Bro. W. G. Stamp, Palmer 
Lod<?e; Bro. G. F. Tapping, Cope-Stone Lodge; and Bro. J. H. 
L. Robertson, St. Mark's Lodge. One Jewel for Fifty Years 
a Past Master was presented to Wor. Bro. R. Misener of St. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 143 

Mark's Lodge. The reminiscences of these brethren were 
very enlightening. 

Several fraternal visits were exchanged with our brethren 
in the United States. The brethren of Woodward Lodge, No. 
508, Cleveland, Ohio, and their families visited Niagara Falis 
on the week-end of April 7. They were entertained by a 
sight-seeing tour of the Niagara District and a dinner dance. 
In the afternoon the brethren attended an emergent meeting 
of St. Mark's Lodge, No. 105, Clifton Lodge, No. 254, and 
Adoniram Lodge No. 573. At this meeting the Niagara 
D;.-:rict Police Team conferred the Third Degree on a mem- 
ber of the local police. Guests at the dinner dance included 
Bro. F. J. Miller, Mayor of Niagara Falls, Ontario, and Bro. 
H. R. Mitchinson, Reeve of Stamford Township. 

Divine Services were held by ten Lodges of this District, 
which were well attended. The District Divine Service was 
held in St. Andrews United Church, Niagara Falls, and was 
conducted by the District Chaplain. Wor. Bro. Rev. W. D. 
Goodger spoke on "Important Duties". Brethren from all 
Lodges in the District attended this Service. 

The Masters' and Wardens' Association held two meet- 
ing's during the year under the direction of Wor. Bro. G. E. 
Pedlar. At the first one, held in Myrtle Lodge, Port Robinson, 
Bro. Rev. John Kitchen spoke on his Masonic experiences in 
China, covei-ing a period of thirty-five years. At the second, 
held in Dominion Lodge, Ridgeway, Bro. Lloyd Young showed 
pictures of the construction of the Sir Adam Beck Generating 
Station (Ontario Hydro) at Queenston, Ontario. Both meet- 
ings were educational and enjoyable. 

Most Lodges in the District held Ladies' Nights. Mrs. 
Storehouse and I received manv kindnesses from the brethren 
and their ladies at these events. 

It has been a privilege for me to serve the brethren of 
Niagara Distiict "B". There are many memories in my heart 
that will never fade away. I hope that I have contributed 
some small part for the good of Masonry in our community. 

W. J. STONEHOUSE, D.D.G.M. 

NIPISSING EAST DISTRICT 

As another Masonic year gradually draws to a close, 
thus ending my term as District Deputy Grand Master of 
Nipissing East District, I find myself looking back over the 
year with mixed emotions. It has been one in which much 
has been accomplished. However, I feel a great deal more 
could have been done for the benefit of Masonry in the 
District if time had permitted. 



144 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

The privilege of representing- the Grand Master has 
been a distinct pleasure and a very high honour. It has 
been a e^-eat experience to visit all the Lodges in the District 
and each will be remembered as an important part of my 
Masonic life. 

I appointed W. Bro. L. G. Miller as District Secretary, 
R.W. Bro. J. Smorthwaite as District Chaplain, and W. Bro. 
H. Haley as District Supervisor of Masonic Education. These 
brethren accompanied me on my visits to the various Lodges 
and their assistance lightened my work during the year. 

The eight Lodges of the District were inspected and the 
warm and courteous reception accorded to me on each oc- 
casion reflected the high esteem which is held for the Grand 
Master and Grand Lodge. Masonry in general in Nipissing 
East is in reasonably good condition. While some Lodges 
are progressing favourably, others are having financial 
difficulties. The lack of candidates is largely responsible 
for this condition and also contributes to the poor attendance 
at meetings. It was suggested that annual dues be increased 
as a means of improving lodge income. To encourage at- 
tendance at meetings, it was suggested that more meetings 
be devoted to Masonic Education. Exemplification of degrees 
was also recommended to hold the interest of the members. 

The records of each Lodge were found to be very well 
kept, from which I can only conclude that all lodge business 
is in very capable hands. The importance of fire insurance 
was stressed and in most cases was found to be adequate to 
cover lodge property. The majority of the Lodges are pro- 
gressing with Masonic Education while a few have little or 
none. It was brought to the attention of the Masters that 
this is necessary in our Masonic work and in life and should 
be given, particularly for the benefit of the newer members. 

Degree work was witnessed in five of the eight Lodges. 
The remaining three did not have candidates available but 
were examined in other portions of the work. It appeared 
that some officers do not take the interest in their work 
which they should. Therefore, in some cases, the calibre of 
the work leaves much to be desired. It was pointed out that 
it is important for the officers to learn and deliver their own 
portions of the work, rather than leave it for another member 
or a Past Master. 

My inspection of Elk Lake Lodge, No. 507, was originally 
scheduled for May 10th, 1960. Owing to the severe floods 
raging in that area, the roads became inundated and it was 
impossible to reach the lodge building. This meeting was 
cancelled after notifying the Grand Secretary. The Wor- 
shipful Master called an emergent meeting for May 31 when 
my official inspection of that Lodge was made. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 145 

A private meeting was held in North Bay on September 
26th, with the Masters and Wardens of the four Lodges in 
the southern area of the District. A similar meeting- was 
held m New Liskeard on October 31st, with the Masters and 
Wardens of the four Lodges in the northern area. Unfortun- 
ately it was not possible for all to attend but a good number 
were present at each meeting. The District Secretary ac- 
companied me on both of these occasions. These meetings 
proved to be very beneficial in planning the work for the 
year and served the following purposes; 

(a) To meet the Masters of the various Lodges in the 
District. 

(b) To have the opportunity of passing along to the 
officers certain information which would help them 
with their work. 

(c) To give the officers of each Lodge the opportunity 
of becoming acquainted with one another. 

(d) To discuss certain matters which could not be 
handled fully on the night of an official visit. 

Also, at these meetings I expressed my desire to conduct 
Lodges of Instruction sometime during the year. They 
heartily approved of this venture and offered their fullest 
co-operation. Plans were made to hold a Lodge of Instruc- 
tion for the four Lodges in the northern section of the 
District and one for the four Lodges in the southern portion. 
During the winter, preparatory to these Lodges of Instruc- 
tion, the District Supervisor of Masonic Education and I 
travelled to six Lodges in the District to instruct them in the 
work of the three degrees. 

On Saturday. May 7th, a Lod.ee of Instruction was held 
in the Masonic Temple, Haileybury. The following Lodges 
exemplified the degrees; Elk Lake Lodge, No. 507, First 
Degree; Silver Lodge, No. 486, Second Degree; Temiskaming 
Lodge, No. 462, Third Degree; Haileybury Lodge, No. 485, 
acted as host lodge. Similarly, on Saturday, May 14th, a 
Lodge of Instruction was held in the Masonic Temple, North 
Bay. On this occasion the degrees were scheduled to be 
exemplified by; Sturgeon Falls Lodge, No. 447, First Degree; 
Mattawa Lodge, No. 405. Second Degree; Nipissing Lodge, 
No. 420, Third Degree; North Bay Lodge, No. 617, acted as 
host lodge. Unfortunately, due to severe flooding conditions 
in the Mattawa area, the officers of that Lodge were unable 
to be present. However, several brethren from Mattawa 
Ave re able to be present. The officers of North Bay Lodge, 
therefore, exemplified the work of the Second Degree, in 
addition to acting as host Lodge. On both occasions, the 
First and Second Degrees were exemplified in the afternoon 
and the Third Degree in the evening following a banquet 



146 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

arranged by the host Lodge. These Lodges were held under 
my supervision and I was assisted by Worshipful Brother 
H. Haley, District Supervisor of Masonic Education. The 
guidance and instructions offered appeared to be well re- 
ceived and I feel sure that if they are seriously practised, 
much can be done to bring the work to a higher standard 
in the District. 

Last March, Haileybury Lodge, No. 485, suffered the 
misfortune of having their furnace backfire, filling the build- 
ing with soot and smoke. This made it necessary to clean 
and redecorate the interior of the building. The furnishings 
and lodge regalia also had to be cleaned. 

Prior to writing this report, arrangements were made 
to hold joint services of Divine Worship, on Sunday, June 
19th, in the northern and southern areas of the District. It is 
hoped that many brethren will take the opportunity of 
publicly expressing their belief in the Great Architect of 
the Universe by attending their respective Church Service. 
If past years are indicative, these Services will be well 
attended. 

In conclusion, I should like to thank the brethren of 
Nipissing East District for the honour and privilege of 
serving as their District Deputy Grand Master. Their co- 
operation and loyal support were immensely appreciated. 

It is hoped that I have fulfilled my duties as District 
Deputy Grand Master thoroughly and efficiently and have, 
in some small way, served Masonry in general and Nipissing 
East District in particular. 

A. S. R. EASEY, D.D.G.M. 



NIPISSING WEST DISTRICT 

It has been a rich and rewarding experience to have 
served Nipissing West District during this year of un- 
precedented expansion. 

I appointed Wor. Bro. Thomas W. Christilaw, District 
Secretary, Wor. Bro. Frank Timmermans, Chairman of 
Masonic Education, and Bro. Rev. S. M. Craymer, District 
Chaplain. I am deeply indebted to these brethren for the 
loyal support, kindly co-operation and helpfulness which they 
so unselfishly extended to me at all times. 

On two successive nights, October 2nd and October 3rd, 
it was my pleasant duty to assist Most. Wor. Bro. W. L. 
Wright in the ceremonies of Constitution and Consecration 
of Bethel Lodge, No. 699, Sudbury, and Elliot Lake Lodge, 



TORONTO, ONTARIO. 1960 147 

No. 698, in their temporary quarters in Blind River. Both 
were well attended and the brethren were greatly impressed 
by the inspiring addresses so masterfully delivered by Most 
Wor. Bro. Wright. Immediaely following the ceremonies 1 
installed the officers, assisted by a very able installation 
team. 

The new Temple of Espanola Lodge, No. 527, was 
dedicated on November 6th, 1959, Most Wor. Bro. W. L. 
Wright officiating. I would be remiss if I failed to mention 
the outstanding contribution of Rt. Wor. Bro. Canon F. W. 
Colloton who performed splendidly in the office of Grand 
Chaplain during these ceremonies. 

April 23rd, was truly the highlight cf my term of office. 
It was my privilege to assist the Grand Master C. M. Pitts, 
at the Dedication of the new Temple of Lome Lodge, No. 
622, Chapleau. The Grand Masters address, together with 
his dynamic personality, made a lasting impression on every- 
one present. The brethren of Espanola Lodge, No. 527, and 
Lome Lodge. No. 622, cannot be too highly commended on 
their beautiful and well appointed premises. 

Dyment Lodge, No. 442, Thessalon, has purchased the 
building in which their temple is housed and are planning 
extensive renovations when finances permit. 

Elliot Lake Lodge, No. 698, is presently engaged in the 
process of obtaining suitable quarters in Elliot Lake, which 
they anticipate will be ready late this year. 

Nipissing West District was honoured on December 8th, 
by a visit of the Deputy Grand Master, Rt. Wor. Bro. R. W. 
Treleaven. Keystone Lodge, No. 412, was host for this 
occasion. We are grateful to have had the opportunity to 
meet this outstanding Mason. 

During my official visits to the seventeen Lodges it was 
my privilege to witness a degree exemplified by each Lodge 
without exception. I am pleased to report that the work 
was performed in most cases in a very proficient manner. 
I noted that the brethren of the District made a great effort 
to visit the various Lodges on their inspection night, which 
was most encouraging. It is indeed gratifying to see the 
junior officers, and those who do not hold office, taking such 
an active part in the work. I was most impressed by the 
calibre of the candidates being received into Masonry. Their 
contribution, I feel, will in years to come, amply justify the 
trust we have placed in them. 

My District Secretary accompanied me on every official 
visit and he reports that the records of all Lodge Secretaries 
are in excellent condition; all Lodges have adequate in- 
surance coverage and are in sound financial condition. 



148 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

I endeavoured to promote Masonic Education on each 
visit and was impressed by the effective programmes that 
are working successfully in some Lodges. However there is 
a great need for the advancement of this most worthwhile 
project in this District. 

The Remembrance Memorial Fund has been well public- 
ized by every Lodge and has been well received. The various 
committees and Lodge Secretaries are to be commended for 
their untiring efforts to ensure the success of this venture. 

I regret that, due to circumstances beyond my control, I 
was very late in organizing the Blood Donors' Service in this 
District. We will be in a position to participate in the fall. 

I have arranged for a Lodge of Instruction to be held in 
Blind River on June 25th. All Lodges in the District will 
be represented and, from the enthusiasm expressed by the 
brethren, we are assured of a good attendance. 

In conclusion, may I express my sincere and heartfelt 
thanks to all the Masons in this District for the wonderful 
co-operation extended to me during the past year. Their 
contribution has made my task a pleasant duty and is ap- 
preciated.

NORTH HURON DISTRICT 

It has been a rewarding experience to have served as 
D.D.G.M. of North Huron District during the Masonic Year 
1959-60. Each of the twelve Lodges in the District received 
me with the greatest splendour and hospitality, making me 
ever conscious of the exalted position which I endeavoured to 
fulfill to the best of my ability. 

I appointed Wor. Bro. J. Gordon Leggat of Wingham as 
District Secretary. His services have been loyal and he has 
given of his time freely in fulfilling the duties of the office, 
also accompanying me on all my official visits. Other ap- 
pointments were Wor. Bro. R. Ross Vogan as Chairman of 
Masonic Education, Bro. Rev. T. Garnet Husser as District 
Chaplain and Rt. Wor. Bro. Harvey G. Linklater as District 
Chairman of Blood Donors. 

On my official visits several Lodges conferred degrees 
in a very excellent manner. Lodges without degree work to 
confer opened and closed in the three degrees in a very 
capable and efficient manner in accordance with the ritual. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 149 

My District Secretary reports that all Lodges are in 
reasonably good condition; their reports are accurate and 
capably compiled. The fire insurance coverage of one Lodge 
was not to the standard expected. However it will be in- 
creased in the near future. 

It was an honour and privilege to visit with the neighbor- 
ing D.D.G.M's. of Bruce and South Huron Districts on some 
of their official visits. They both returned the compliment 
by visiting me on my official visit to my home Lodge, which 
I deeply appreciated. Each Lodge in North Huron District 
was represented on that occasion. 

On April 8th I had the pleasure of attending St. 
Lawrence Lodge. No. 131. Southampton when they held their 
centennial celebration. This indeed was a wonderful evening 
for Masonry in Bruce District. 

Blood donating this year under the Chairmanship of Rt. 
Wor. Bro. Harvey G. Linklater is on the move, due to his 
efforts to impress upon the brethren the urgent necessity 
of donations to this worthy cause. 

A Ladies' Night was held by several Lodges in the 
District; it was my pleasure to attend some of these events, 
accompanied by my wife; they were very much enjoyed. 

The Past Masters', Masters' and Wardens' Associations 
are very active and are a great help in furthering Masonic 
Education in the District. All meetings are well attended 
and are a means whereby further light is extended in 
Masonry. 

Our District Divine Service was held in Wingham United 
Church on Sunday, May 29th, each Lodge in the District 
being represented. Bro. Rev. T. Garnet Husser, District 
Chaplain, delivered an inspiring address, the text of the 
sermon being "Christianity". I read the lesson from the 
Volume of the Sacred Law. Most Lodges in the District 
have a local Divine Service, several of which I had the 
pleasure of attending. 

It is a practise within the District to hold inter-lodge 
fraternal visits. These visits are a great asset to Masonry 
by creating true friendship and brotherly love. 

In closing I wish to express thanks to the Secretaries, 
Worshipful Masters and all the brethren in the District for 
their co-operation. 

K. H. SAXTON, D.D.G.M.

ONTARIO DISTRICT 

It has been a very great privilege and an enriching 
experience to have served as District Deputy Grand Master 
in Ontario District. The very high esteem and respect in 
which the Most Worshipful the Grand Master is held was 
reflected by the sincerity with which I was received on all 
visits throughout the District. I wish to express to the 
Masters, Past Masters, Wardens, officers and brethren my 
deep appreciation for the kindness of their greetings and the 
co-operation I enjoyed. 

I appointed Wor. Bro. Clarence J. Allin, District Secre- 
tary, Wor. Bro. Rev. Alexander G. Scott, District Chaplain, 
Wor. Bro. Garnet B. Rickard, Chairman of Masonic Education, 
and Wor. Bro. Chas. L. Warren, Chairman of Masonic Blood 
Donors. 

To my District Secretary I owe a special thanks for the 
work he has done in connection with his office. He gave 
generously of his time, which assisted me greatly in my 
duties. I was fortunate in securing the services of my 
District Chaplain, a Past Master who is well informed in out 
Ritual. He accompanied me on all except one of my official 
visits and was often called on to reply to the toast to the 
visitors. His remarks were very timely and his advice was 
freely given and continually sought by the brethren. 

The Annual District Divine Service was held in Trinity 
United Church, Bowmanvilie, on May 15th. Wor. Bro. Rev. 
A. G. Scott, assisted by Bro. Rev. Wm. K. Houslander, Trinity 
United Church Minister, conducted the service. The District 
Chaplain delivered a very inspiring message. Special music 
was provided by a Masonic choir directed by Bro. Arthur 
Collison, Organist at Trinity Church. 

Wor. Bro. Garnet B. Rickard, Chairman of Masonic 
Education is worthy of mention for the work he has done in 
the District. Two special meetings were held, one in Ontario 
Lodge, No. 26, Port Hope, when Past Masters of Durham 
Lodge, No. 66, Newcastle, put on an educational programme 
in the First Degree. The other was held in Parkwood Lodge, 
No. 695, Oshawa. This meeting took the form of a Lodge 
of Instruction with Rt. Wor. Bro. Molson C. Cain as guest 
speaker who spoke on the symbolism in the three Degrees. 

I also want to thank Wor. Bro. Chas. T. Warren for the 
fine work he did as Chairman of the Blood Donors' Com- 
mittee. 

I contacted all the Lodges in the District regarding 
donations to the Grand Lodge Remembrance Fund and 1 
anticipate a generous response. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 151 

One of the outstanding 1 events in Ontario District was 
the Dedication of the new Temple of Fidelity Lodge, No. 428, 
Port Perry, under the direction of the Grand Master, who by 
his presence and timely address did much in strengthening 
the appreciation and meaning of Freemasonry. Every Lodge 
in Ontario District was represented and took part in the 
Dedication Ceremony. Fidelity Lodge is to be congratulated 
on the planning and completing the building of their new 
Temple. 

I presented a Fifty Year Past Masters' Jewel to Wor. 
Bro. Edward Tape of Hope Lodge, No. 114, and a Fifty Year 
Master Masons' Medal to Bros. Sidney Scott and Wesley T. 
Cawker of Jerusalem Lodge, No. 31. I also, assisted in the 
Dedication of an altar cloth in Orono Lodge, No. 325, which 
was donated by Mrs. LeBoy Hamilton in memory of her late 
husband, an esteemed Bro. of Orono Lodge. A special 
privilege was afforded me on being present at the present- 
ation of regalia to Bit. Wor. Bro. Earl J. McKeever, Grand 
Registrar. He was invested by Rt. Wor. Bro. George Finnie, 
P.D.D.G.M. Many Grand Lodge officers, present and past, 
were there to honour our worthy brother. 

I officially visited the fourteen Lodges in the District 
at which a degree was exemplified by each of the Lodges. 
Practically every officer was sincere and earnest, and created 
an impression on each of the candidates. I am pleased to 
report that Masonry is in a healthy condition in Ontario 
District. 

My District Secretary reports that the records and 
finances of the Lodges are also in excellent condition, with 
a minimum of members in arrears. 

The Past Masters', Masters' and Wardens' Association 
in the District fulfills a worthwhile function and the mem- 
bers are to be commended on the work that has been and is 
being done to further the spirit of Freemasonry. 

During my year, I made a fraternal visit to Prince 
Edward District and witnessed the Dedication Ceremony of 
Craig Lodge, Deseronto. I also attended the Installation of 
Wor. Bro. John Dargavel as Master of Grenville Lodge, 
Toronto. 

Accompanied by my wife, I attended several Ladies' 
Nights in the District. A very pleasant time was enjoyed 
and I wish to compliment the Lodges on the high standard 
of entertainment provided. 

Finally, I want to thank all the Lodges for their co- 
operation "and sympathetic understanding that has been 
accorded me by the members throughout the District. 

E. F. RUSSELL OSBORNE, D.D.G.M. 



152 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

OTTAWA DISTRICT 

It has been a very rewarding- experience for me to serve 
as District Deputy Grand Master and represent the 'Grand 
Master in this his home district. It has been an experience 
I shall always cherish and remember with pleasure. The 
cordial and gracious reception accorded me on my official 
and fraternal visits is sincerely and gratefully acknowledged. 
It is my wish to express to the Masters, Past Masters, 
Officers and brethren my deep appreciation for the genuine 
kindness of their greetings wherever I visited. 

The appointments of Wor. Bro. Roy Lester as District 
Secretary, Wor. Bro. Victor Poland as Chairman of Masonic 
Education, and the late Rev. Bro. A. H. Sproule as District 
Chaplain, proved to be most excellent choices. I was indeed 
very sorry at the death of Rev. Bro. Sproule. I then ap- 
pointed Rt. Wor. Bro. H. H. Dymond as Chaplain, which he 
served with dignity. 

Some of the highlights that stand out in my mind for 
this year are September 5th when my own Lodge honoured 
me, September 30th when Dalhousie Lodge, the Grand 
Master's own Lodge, honoured him, and November 30th, when 
the District honoured our Grand Master. 

Official visitations were made to the twenty-nine Lodges. 
I was at all times impressed with the dignity with which the 
Masters of each Lodge, assisted by Past Masters and Officers, 
conferred the various degrees. I was also grateful to observe 
the self assurance with which some members participated. 

During the season I witnessed all three degrees and am 
proud to report that the standard of ritual is very high. I 
would also make favourable comment regarding the care 
with which brethren prepared for the Felloweraft and Master 
Mason Degrees. It indicated that our brethren have a real 
interest in assisting their fellows in the inferior degrees. 

One of the highlights of the year was the Centennial 
Anniversary of Renfrew Lodge, No. 122, which was observed 
by a Divine Service, Grand Lodge Officers of the District 
conferring a Degree, the R.C.M.P. degree team putting on a 
degree, the Past Masters of Renfrew Lodge putting on a 
degree, and also a Banquet with Masons and their wives 
attending, at which our Grand Master, C. M. Pitts, was guest 
speaker. 

This District enjoys an active Past Masters' and Wardens' 
Association and I feel this Association is performing an 
important function in Masonry. Meetings are well attended 
and valuable information is derived from these. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 153 

371 members have contributed blood through the Red 
Cross this year to date. This has been a year of transferring 
from local groups to the Red Cross and I feel this is gratify- 
ing. 

Our Annual District Church Services were held again 
this year — one service in Ottawa on May 5th, and the second 
on May 29th at Arnprior. 

I had the pleasure of addressing the Senior Wardens. 
My address dealt with the duties of the Worshipful Masters 
and matters of Masonic interest for the good of the District. 

I would indeed be remiss if I did not mention the fine 
work of the Secretaries of our Lodges and their co-operation 
throughout the year at all times. 

The Official Visit to my Mother Lodge was a night I 
will long remember. Every Lodge in the District was repre- 
sented as well as twenty-seven Masters, also visitors from 
Quebec District on the other side of the Ottawa River. The 
Masters' presentation of their picture is sincerely appreciated. 

The many "At Homes" held by the various Lodges were 
most thoroughly enjoyed by the District Secretary, our wives 
and myself. The friendly and sincere manner in which we 
were received on every occasion was most warmly appreciated. 

Our Annual District Masonic Ball was a huge success. 
Twenty eight Wor. Masters and their wives, all District 
Officers and their wives and many Grand Lodge Officers, 
past and present, and our Grand Master, C. M. Pitts, were 
all present. 

It is with regret that I report the passing of a number 
of faithful and highly respected brethren. In many instances 
Masonic honours were observed and, whenever it was possible, 
the Grand Master and I were present. 

I am most happy to report that Masonry in this District 
is in good hands. Ritualistic work in all Lodges is excellent, 
and the support given by the Past Masters deserves mention. 
Members are eager to participate and their contributions are 
outstanding. 

The Masters, Officers and members of all Lodges have 
made for me a year that will always be remembered. The 
many kindnesses extended to me are deeply appreciated 
and it is my sincere hope that I have, in some small way, 
strengthened the bond of friendship among the Lodges of 
this Ottawa District. 

PERCIL W. COLLINS, D.D.G.M. 



154 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

PETERBOROUGH DISTRICT 

During my year in office I have been very conscious of 
my debt to the Masters and members of the District for the 
honour and privilege of serving them as District Deputy 
Grand Master and for the co-operation they have given me. 
I am also grateful to the able Masons who have filled the 
District offices of Secretary, Chaplain and Supervisor of 
Masonic Education. 

I have received a warm and enthusiastic welcome from 
every Lodge in the District. I have found the work of the 
Lodges to be uniform and to range in quality from good to 
excellent. I have found the Wor. Masters to be dedicated 
Masons who, with the help of their Past Masters, are train- 
ing the junior officers in such a way that the continuity of 
good ritualistic work seems to be assured. I have been 
impressed by the quality of the candidates I have met, but 
I have found the usual low percentage of members attending 
regular meetings especially in the larger Lodges. Obviously 
there is no easy way of improving attendance but I think it 
would help if sponsors of candidates would assume respons- 
ibility for the attendance of Masons they sponsor for at 
least two years after they have been raised. 

I am also very concerned about the absence of fire 
escapes in a few lodge rooms visited and I recommend that 
Grand Lodge take immediate action to prevent a major 
disaster which could easily take place under present con- 
ditions. 

My District Secretary, Wor. Bro. S. Jethro Graham, has 
accompanied me on all official visits. He has examined 
Auditors' Reports and lodge records and reports favourably 
on them. He has also been ready and willing, when called 
upon, to share his Masonic knowledge and experience with the 
brethren visited. 

I wish also to commend the assistance of Wor. Bro. 
Evan Mcllraith, District Supervisor of Masonic Education. 
He has accompanied me on all visits and has conferred in 
person with the Chairmen of Lodge Committees on Education. 
I am sure they found his counsel most helpful. It is due to 
men of his calibre that Masonic Education has an important 
place in the meetings of all Lodges in the District. 

During his term of office as District Chaplain Bro. the 
Rev. Gordon S. Maxwell was honoured to receive the Degree 
of Doctor of Divinity from Queen's University. The brethren 
of the District join me in congratulating Dr. Maxwell on 
this well-merited honour. The Annual District Church 
Service was held in Dr. Maxwell's Church where the brethren 
heard an outstanding sermon on the text, "Let There Be 
Light". 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 155 

Several meetings held during- the year are worthy of 
note. 

The celebration of the 100th Anniversary of Golden Rule 
Lodge, No. 126, in March was honoured by the presence of 
the Grand Master who gave an inspiring address on the 
condition of Masonry. 

For their sixth Anniversary in October the William 
James Dunlop Lodge, No. 675, invited Past Grand Master 
Dunlop to be present. The degree was exemplified by the 
Wor. Masters of all Lodges of which Dr. Dunlop is a member. 

In March, Corinthian Lodge, No. 101, invited the Wor. 
Masters of the District Lodges to visit the Lodge, fill the 
chairs and confer the E.A. Degree. The many District 
and local Masons who attended were enthusiastic and urged 
that similar meetings be an annual event in the District. 

In June the same Lodge gave the Past D.D.G.M'S. a 
chance to show what they could do under similar conditions. 
I commend such meetings since they bring the Wor. Masters 
of the District together as friends and co-workers, stimulate 
attendance and give the work in the District a firm basis 
for uniformity. 

C. S. BROWNE, D.D.G.M. 



PRINCE EDWARD DISTRICT 

It has been a very rewarding experience for me to serve 
as the D.D.G.M. during the past year. The esteem and 
respect for the Grand Master is reflected by the sincerity 
and loyalty accorded me by the cordial and gracious reception 
by the seventeen Lodges in the District. 

I appointed Wor. Bro. Foster Boulton as District Secre- 
tary, Wor. Bro. Eric Smith as District Chaplain, Wor. Bro. 
Harold Burke as Chairman of Masonic Education Committee, 
and Wor. Bro. James Pow, Chairman of the Blood Donors' 
Committee. I am especially grateful for the capable as- 
sistance I received from these brethren during the year. 
They accompanied me on almost all of my official visits* 
and to a number of special nights in the various Lodges. 

It was a great pleasure to have two visits to the District 
by the Grand Master during my term of office. On Dec- 
ember 7 the lodge room of Craig Lodge, No. 401, Deseronto, 
was dedicated by Most Worshipful Brother C. M. Pitts, 
assisted by Rt. Wor. Bro. George McQueen and a number of 
present and past Grand Lodge officers. Then on March 17 
a District Reception was held for the Grand Master in 



156 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Belleville on the occasion of the Centennial of The Belleville 
Lodge, No. 123. Despite inclement weather a large crowd 
was present. On both occasions the Grand Master addressed 
the brethren in his usual inspiring and impressive manner. 
The Centennial Committee of The Belleville Lodge are to be 
congratulated on the manner in which they observed their 
centennial year. On Sunday, December 27, a Divine Service 
was held in the lodge room for the members' families and 
friends. Since then they have held "Special Nights" which 
were very successful. One of these was a Senior Wardens' 
Night with the Grand Senior Warden, Rt. Wor. Bro. J. J. 
Talman, occupying the Masters' chair and the Senior Wardens 
of the District filling the other offices. I regret very much 
that this evening conflicted with my schedule which called 
for my official visit to Picton, but from all reports the 
evening was very successful. 

Early in the fall another Special Night in the District 
was arranged by Eureka Lodge, No. 283, Belleville, when the 
Past D.D.G.Ms.' of the District occupied the chairs for a 
First Degree with Rt. Wor. Bro. E. C. Wood in charge. It 
was a pleasure for me to see such a gathering of Past Grand 
Lodge officers in charge and to know that I had such a 
fine group of Masons available to call on for advice or 
assistance if the occasion ever arose. This later proved 
helpful in filling in for the Grand Lodge officers who could 
not be present at the Dedication Ceremonies at Deseronto. 

Many Lodges in the District held Ladies' Nights at which 
my wife and I were present, along with the District officers 
and their wives, which afforded a splendid opportunity of 
associating with the brethren and their wives. 

The District Secretary reports that he found the books 
of the Lodges in good condition and lodge finances healthy. 
A number of Lodges have redecorated their premises and 
Franck Lodge, No. 127, is well along with its building and 
expect to be in its new premises this fall. All the Lodges are 
busy with work, and some have considerable degree work 
necessitating a number of emergent meetings. 

The appeal for the "Remembrance Memorial Fund" was 
made to all the Lodges in the District. The Secretaries tell 
me that all the contributions are not in yet but they hope 
to complete them by the end of June. Three Lodges had put 
on a drive for funds to reduce the mortgage on their own 
new buildings, hence I felt I could not put too much pressure 
on them at present. 

The Lodge that is now building has not as yet had to 
raise a mortgage and should it be nceessary it will not be for 
as much as had been anticipated earlier. For this the Lodge 
is to be congratulated. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 157 

I presented a number of Veteran Jubilee Medals to 
brethren in the District and special mention must be made 
of the presentation of a Long- Service Medal to Wor. Bro. 
Charles Carter by the Grand Master on his visit to Belleville 
in March. However, the pleasure of these occasions was 
tempered by the number of Masonic funerals for brethren 
who passed on during the year to the Grand Lodge Above. 

I would like to refer at this time to the Past Masters', 
Masters', and Wardens' Association of the District under the 
capable chairmanship of Wor. Bro. Ray Grant, assisted by 
Rt. Wor. Bro. R. M. Gunsolus, the Secretary-Treasurer. It 
is doing excellent work and is filling an important place in 
Masonry. 

I exchanged visits with Rt. Wor. Bro. Bruce Caughey, 
D.D.G.M. of Frontenac District, on the occasion of the Grand 
Masters' Reception in each of our Districts. I also had the 
pleasure of meeting the D.D.G.M. from St. Lawrence District, 
Rt. Wor. Bro Harry Trueman, on two occasions, and also 
Rt. Wor. Bro. Osborne of Ontario District, and exchanged 
greetings and experiences with both these brethren. 

The Chairman of the Masonic Education Committee, 
Wor. Bro. Harold Burke, reports that the various Lodges 
have found time to include more Masonic Education at their 
regular meetings and have discovered a few very capable 
members among the rank and file, well qualified to give 
short talks along with the regular members who have been 
doing this important task in the past. 

My official activities of the year concluded on June 5 
with the Annual Divine Service held in King Street United 
Church, Trenton. The District Chaplain, Wor. Bro. Eric 
Smith, arranged to have Very Wor. Bro. Rev. Robertson 
Millar, Assistant Grand Chaplain, attend and deliver the 
Sermon; Rev. J. T. Irwin, Minister of King Street United 
Church, also assisted. It was fairly well attended by some 
two hundred Masons from the Lodges throughout the District. 

I will look back on this year with pleasant memories of 
the friends and acquaintances I have made and I hope in a 
humble way that I have contributed something for the good 
of Masonry in this District. 

L. DOUGLAS McMASTER, D.D.G.M. 

SARNIA DISTRICT 

The past year has been a very rewarding and enjoyable 
one and a wonderful experience for me. To the Masters, 
Officers and members of the twenty-one Lodges of the 



158 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

District who made it so, I express my gratitude. I am 
particularly grateful to the District Officers who so ably 
assisted me during the year. 

Wor. Bro. Harold Barnes, who served me as my Senior 
Warden during my year as Master, served me once more, 
and most capably as District Secretary. He accompanied 
me on all my official visits, attended every Divine Service 
held by the Lodges of the District and performed such other 
duties as to lighten the labours of this office. Brother The 
Reverend D. St. Clair Campbell, the District Chaplain, in 
spite of the demands of a large parish, accompanied me on 
many of my official visits, attended the Dedication Services 
at Watford and Thedford and conducted a most excellent 
District Divine Service. Wor. Bro. Leslie Crooks, Chairman 
of Masonic Education, accompanied me on most visits and 
was particularly attentive to his educational duties. 

I officially visited each of the twenty-one Lodges, when 
a degree was either conferred or exemplified. I am pleased 
to report that the degree work is of a high standard ranging 
from very good to excellent. I was deeply impressed with 
the sincerity of the officers taking part in the degree work. 

Two Lodges of Instruction were held when the First 
and Second Degree were exemplified. The officers were 
chosen from the Junior Officers of the four city Lodges, 
the two Petrolia Lodges and the Lodges at Brigden, Cam- 
lachie and Courtright. Four practice sessions were held and 
the two degrees were exemplified at Sarnia under the 
auspices of Tuscan Lodge, and at Strathroy under the 
auspices of the Past Masters' and Wardens' Association and 
Beaver Lodge. 

The majority of the Lodges held Ladies' Nights, most of 
which Bro. and Mrs. Barnes and Mrs. Russell and I were 
able to attend. The warm welcome and hospitality made 
these visits more pleasant and added to the enjoyment of 
the whole year. 

Most District Lodges held Divine Services which I 
attended whenever possible. The District Divine Service was 
held in St. Andrews Presbyterian Church at Sarnia with 
approximately two hundred brethren in attendance. The 
District Chaplain, delivered the sermon. 

A most unique event highlighted the year's activities 
when M.W. Bro. Clarence McLeod Pitts visited the Sarnia 
District for the purpose of dedicating the lodge rooms at 
Watford and Thedford and of attending the District Recep- 
tion. Grand Lodge assembled at Watford at 4 p.m. and 
proceeded to dedicate the lods:e room of Havelock Lodge, No. 
238. The District Reception was held in the Legion Hall, 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 159 

Thedford, at 6.30 p.m. An overflow crowd of approximately 
three hundred were in attendance. At 8 p.m., Grand Lodge 
reassembled and proceeded to dedicate the new lodge rooms 
of Cassia Lodge, No. 116, Thedford. 

In conclusion, may I express my sincere appreciation for 
the honour of being elected to the office of D.D.G.M. and for 
the wonderful receptions and co-operation I received during 
the past year. The many friendships which I have made 
have established this as a most rewarding year. 

HARRY RUSSELL, D.D.G.M. 



SOUTH HURON DISTRICT 

It is an honour for me to submit my report on the 
condition of Masonry in South Huron District. 

First, I would like to express my appreciation to the 
brethren of the District for electing me to the office of 
District Deputy Grand Master. 

One of my first official duties was to appoint Wor. Bro. 
James Feagan as my District Secretary. On each of our 
official visits he received a report from each Lodge. 

I visited all of the seventeen Lodges in the District once 
officially, and once fraternally. The work in the District, as 
a whole, is uniform and well given. Each Lodge shows the 
keen interest and skill that the Masters and Officers are 
putting into their work. Nearly all of the Lodges have 
completed their exchange visits for the year. It was a 
pleasure to have Rt. Wor. Bro. H. Hill, P.D.D.G.M., also a 
member of Morning Star Lodge, accompany me on all my 
official visits. 

During the current year Lebanon Forest Lodge, No. 133, 
Exeter, celebrated its One Hundredth Anniversary, one of the 
chief functions of the occasion being a fine banquet at which 
the Grand Master, Most Wor. Bro. C. M. Pitts, gave a most 
impressive message. Lebanon Forest also held a Church 
Service in connection with the Anniversary at which the 
Grand Chaplain, Rt. Wor. Bro. Rev. M. G. B. Williams, 
delivered a very instinctive sermon. 

I attended two Dedications of new Lodges, one at Inger- 
soll in the Wilson District, and one at Thedford in the Sarnia 
District. I was also able to attend St. Lawrence Lodge, 
Southampton, Bruce District, when they celebrated their 
Hundredth Anniversary. The Most Wor. Bro. C. M. Pitts, 
Grand Master, was an honoured guest and speaker on this 
occasion. Rt. Wor. Bro. K. Saxon of North Huron District 
and I had two exchange visits. 



160 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

The District Divine Service was held on May 29 in the 
Benmiller United Church with our own District Chaplain, 
Wor. Bro. Rev. E. Moore delivering' an inspiring message. 
Many of the Lodges held Church Services of their own, some 
of which I was able to attend. I also attended two other 
District Church Services, one in the Wilson District and one 
in the London District. 

In January of this year I had the privilege of initiating 
my son into Masonry in my own Lodge, Morningstar. The 
offices were all held by Past Grand Lodge Officers; also 
present were District Deputies C. Sutherland, London Dis- 
trict, B. McCall, Wilson District, R. Delong, Bruce District, 
and Rt. Wor. Bro. Irvine of the Board of General Purposes. 

The Past Masters' Association of South Huron District 
held a Ladies' Night and Banquet at Goderich in April with 
the majority of the Lodges in the District well represented. 

In conclusion, I wish to pass on to my successor the 
same loyal support that was extended to me. I shall always 
cherish the memory of the many courtesies and sincere

privilege of making through the yeai - . 

WM. G. TREBLE, D.D.G.M. 



ST. LAWRENCE DISTRICT 

For me to have had the privilege to serve as D.D.G.M. 
for St. Lawrence District has indeed been a wonderful 
experience, and may I express my appreciation for this 
distinguished honour that was bestowed on me. 

I appointed Wor. Bro. Arthur James Horton as my 
District Secretary. He accompanied me on my official 
visits and informed me that he found the books and records 
of the Lodges in good order. 

I appointed Bro. Rev. C. K. Mathewson as my District 
Chaplain. He also accompanied me on my official visits. 
found the support given by these brethren to be of great 
value. It was my pleasure to appoint Rt. Wor. Bro. U. ±.. 
Keene as District Supervisor of Masonic Education and 
under 'his chairmanship. Masonic Education shows a very 
substantial increase this year. The Blood Donors Committee 
also showed a large increase under the District Chairmanship 
of Wor Bro. C. E. Marshall. For the final results of these 
two Committees, I would like to pay tribute to Rt. Wor. 
Bro. 0. E. Keene, and Wor. Bro. C. E. Marshall for their 
interest and support. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 



On my official visits to the 19 Lodges, I was impressed 
by the friendly and enthusiastic reception that I received, 
which clearly indicates the high esteem which Masons of St. 
Lawrence District have for the Grand Master and Grand 
Lodge. I found the work to be exemplified in a very im- 
pressive satisfactory manner. I can very sincerely say that 
Masonry in this District is in a healthy condition. *The work, 
as presented by the Officers and the quality of the candidates 
being: initiated, speaks well for the future of the fraternity. 

I made several visits to Merrickville Lodge, No. 55, 
and Evergreen Lodge, No. 209, as both these Lodges had the 
misfortune in 1959 of losing their lodge rooms, furniture and 
records by fire. I am very pleased to report that the re- 
construction of Merrickville Lodge is just about complete 
and should be ready for dedication in the fall of 1960. The 
brethren of Evergreen Lodge have purchased a lot in the 
Village of Lanark, and are starting construction of a new 
Temple in the near future. 

The brethren of St. Lawrence District were saddened by 
the passing to the Grand Lodge Above, last December of Rt. 
Wor. Bro. Rutherford H. Mcllquham, who down through 
the years had not only been an inspiration to the brethren 
of the District, but also to the brethren of Evergreen Lodge 
whom he had served faithfully for so many years. 

On May 15th, our Annual District Church Service was 
held in Trinity United Church, Smiths Falls. Our District 
Chaplain gave the brethren a very impressive address, there 
being over 400 in attendance. 

This District enjoys an active Past Masters' and 
Wardens' Association, and I feel this Association is per- 
forming an important function in Masonry. Meetings are 
well attended and valuable information is derived from them. 
Its Secretary, Rt. Wor. Bro. F. Latham, does much to pro- 
mote this Association throughout the District. 

It was my pleasure to be present at Dedications of Craig 
Lodge, No. 401, Deseronto, and Farran-Ault Lodge, No. 256, 
Ingleside, with the Grand Master officiating, and a reception 
for the Grand Master in the Frontenac District. On each 
occasion the Grand Master gave an inspiring address. 

In conclusion, may I again thank the brethren for their 
splendid support throughout the year. I shall remember 
this year as the highlight of my Masonic career.

ST. THOMAS DISTRICT 

It has been a very rewarding - experience for me to have 
served as District Deputy Grand Master in the St. Thomas 
District during the past year. 

I visited each Lodge in the District once and most of 
them twice. A degree was conferred at each Official Visit 
with the exception of one. My reception in all Lodges was 
gracious, with cordial and full respect accorded on all oc- 
casions to the Grand Master and Grand Lodge. 

The meetings were well attended by members and visit- 
ing- brethren and degrees were exemplified in a very efficient 
and impressive manner. I was pleased with the capability 
and the sincerity of the officers of the various Lodges and 
with the high calibre of the work which was uniform through- 
out the District and according to the ritual. This is evidence 
of the excellent co-operation among Masters, Past Masters 
and Officers in the District. 

I appointed Wor. Bro. Jefferson I. Cuyler, District Secre- 
tary, Wor. Bro. Win. A. Cowie, District Chaplain, and Wor. 
Bro. Alan V. Levack, Supervisor of Masonic Education. 
These brethren accompanied me on my Official Visits and 
carried out their duties in a most capable manner. 

The books and records of all Lodges were inspected and 
were found to be well kept and in order. The financial 
picture of the District was found to be satisfactory. The 
Secretaries are to be commended for the manner in which 
they perform their duties, for the prompt attention given 
to any request for information and for the notices regularly 
received. 

I have endeavoured to create interest and to stress the 
importance of Masonic Education in the District. I am 
happy to report that every Lodge in the District has_ an 
active committee for the advancement of Masonic Education. 
Wor. Bro. Alan V. Levack. Supervisor of Masonic Education, 
conducted an agressive, well organized programme of Masonic 
Education. The valuable assistance of R.W. Bro. B. B. 
Foster, Chairman of Grand Lodge Committee on Masonic 
Education, has always been an incentive to further the desire 
for Masonic Education in the St. Thomas District. 

The Centennial Observance of Warren Lodge, No. 120, 
was a highlight of the year. The observance was held on 
Friday, October 16, 1959. The Dedication and Investment of 
Gold Braid was performed bv the late M.W. Bro. Nelson C. 
Hart, P.G.M., assisted by Rt. Wor. Bro. J. J. Talman, Grand 
Senior Warden. I was also happy to have been able to 
assist the late M.W. Bro. Nelson C. Hart with the Dedication 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 163 

Ceremony of Lome Lodge, No. 282, Glencoe, on Saturday, 
November 14, 1959. 

The Annual St. Thomas District Masonic Divine Service 
was held in Knox Presbyterian Church on Sunday, May 15, 
with about 500 in attendance. A very inspiring 1 sermon was 
delivered by Rev. Bro. H. S. Rodney, Minister of Knox Church. 
At the social gathering following the Church Service, the 
speaker was Rt. Wor. Bro. J. J. Talman, Grand Senior 
Warden. The speaker was introduced by V. Wor. Bro. G. A. 
Shields, Assistant Grand Chaplain. 

The Past Masters' and Wardens' Association held two 
meetings during the year. The Association gives real leader- 
ship in the District. After the Annual Fish Dinner sponsored 
by St. Mark's Lodge, Port Stanley, on May 30, their annual 
business was conducted at which time Wor. Bro. Arthur F. 
Tilden was elected President. The speaker of the evening 
was V. Wor. Bro. G. A. Shields, Assistant Grand Chaplain. 

The spirit of fraternalism was encouraged by the form- 
ation of the 1959 Masters' Association with Wor. Bro. A. V. 
Levack as Chairman. Several fraternal visits were made in 
the District and degrees were conferred. 

The Ladies' Nights held by the various Lodges of the 
District were thoroughly enjoyed by my wife and myself. 
The friendly and sincere manner in which we were received 
on every occasion was appreciated. 

Several of the Lodges in the District have recently 
/enovated and redecorated their premises and deserve com- 
mendation for their efforts. 

It was interesting to note that Wor. Bro. Bert Lynes, 
who has faithfully filled the various offices of St. David's 
Lodge, No. 302, St. Thomas, is now enjoying a successful 
year as Worshipful Master of the lodge in his 77th year. 

The following brethren, members of St. Thomas Lodge, 
No. 44, were awarded a Sixty Year Pin in recognition of 
sixty years of service: V. Wor. Bro. R. W. Johnson, Bro. 
(Dr!) J. D. Curtis and Bro. George Giles. 

In conclusion, may I report that the condition of Masonry 
in St. Thomas District is satisfactory and in a progressive 
state. For the assistance and co-operation, which was always 
evident, I am sincerely grateful. To have had the privilege 
of serving the St. Thomas District has been a great inspir- 
ation to me and I express my sincere appreciation. 

NORMAN E. ROLLING, D.D.G.M. 



164 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

TEMISKAMING DISTRICT 

I submit herewith the report for Temiskaming District 
for the Masonic year 1959-60. 

I appointed W. Bro. L. II. Netherton as my District 
Secretary. The capable manner in which he carried out his 
duties fulfilled my expectations and I am most grateful for 
the assistance he rendered. I also appointed R.W. Bro. W. J. 
Hill as Supervisor of Masonic Education, Bro. Rev. G. H. 
Tranter as District Chaplain, and W. Bro. K. Redden as 
District Chairman of the Blood Donors' Committee and wish 
to thank all these brethren for the manner in which they 
performed their respective tasks. 

During the course of the year, I visited all Lodges in the 
District and observed their work and functioning. The warmth 
and hospitality with which I was received on all occasions 
was much appreciated. I found the work well presented in 
all the Lodges and it appeared to be uniform. This uni- 
formity is probably due in a large measure to the Lodges of 
Instruction held in recent years and to the many inter-lodge 
visitations which take place in this District. I was greatly 
impressed by the pride which the brethren of all Lodges are 
takinpr in their lodge facilities. Practically every Lodge had 
recently .made improvements to their lodge rooms and build- 
ings and several are planning further improvements as funds 
are available. 

Among the special events which I attended during the 
year was the dedication of an organ in their lodge room by 
the members of Doric and Corinthian Lodges of Kirkland 
Lake. This was a most fitting tribute to the memory of R.W. 
Bro. Clarence H. Telfer, who contributed much to Masonry in 
this District. I also had the pleasure of presenting a Veteran 
Jubilee Medal to Bro. Seigel Buckberrough, a faithful member 
of Englehart Lodge. As all of the Lodges in this District are 
comparatively young, there have been few of the members 
who have achieved this distinction up to the present time. 

Two District Church Services were held; one for the 
southern part of the District in St. Paul's Presbyterian 
Church, Englehart, on May 29th, conducted by Bro. Rev. J. 
R. Cousens, one of our newer members; and one for the 
northern part in the United Church, South Porcupine, on 
June 5th, conducted by Bro. Rev. George Brown. As we were 
unfortunate in losing the services of our District Chaplain, 
who moved from our area at the end of March, I am partic- 
ularly grateful to Bros. Cousens and Brown for willingly arid 
capably conducting these Services. Local Services were also 
held by all Lodges. Although attendance at all Services was 
comparatively good, it is unfortunate to note how many 
brethren consistently make no effort to be present at such 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 1G5 

Services. It is safe to assume that they are the same brethren 
who absent themselves from the regular lodge meetings. 

On the occasion of my official visit to Golden Beaver 
Lodge, Timmins, I was apprised of a movement under way 
for the formation of a second Lodge in that community, due 
to its growth and the increasing number of new members 
being received. If and when the new Lodge comes into being, 
I am sure that all Lodges in the District will wish them 
success and give every support. 

I was fortunate in the fact that I was not confronted 
with any major problems during the year and I think this 
speaks well for the harmony which exists among and within 
the Lodges of the District. 

In conclusion, I wish to express my appreciation of the 
useful instruction given at the outset of the term by M.W. 
Bros. Dunlop and Martyn, and also to the brethren of Temisk- 
aming District for their support and co-operation throughout 
the year, all of which made my task much easier. I would 
thank, in particular, the brethren of Englehart Lodge, of 
whom there were always several accompanied me on every 
occasion to lend moral support. 

To have served as D.D.G.M. for Temiskamine has been 
of special significance to me in that my late father served 
in the same capacity some 35 years ago. I have found the 
experience most enjoyable and instructive and hope that the 
knowledge I have gained will enable me to make a greater 
contribution to Masonry in the days to come. 

D. J. PATERSON, D.D.G.M. 



TORONTO DISTRICT "A 1" 

In assembling a report on the many activities of this 
very important year as District Deputy Grand Master, it is 
evident that one cannot hope to cover adequately all the 
happy and pleasant events which took place during the year. 

The cordial and gracious reception extended in each 
Lodge is evidence of the high esteem and affection the Masons 
of this District have for the Grand Master and Grand Lodge. 

The many duties were greatly lightened by the following 
brethren, who so willingly accepted the responsibility of the 
various phases of the work. W. Bro. Harold W. Dunton, 
District Secretary; Bro. The Rev. George A. W. Lark, District 
Chaplain; W. Bro. William A. Stewart and W. Bro. Edward 
H. Smith, Chairman and Secretary of the District Committee 
on Masonic Education, and W. Bro. W. A. Campbell, Chairman 



166 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

of the Blood Donors' Committee. To these capable brethren 
must be given credit for a very successful year. 

Early in the year the District was deeply grieved by the 
passing of R.W. Bro. Smith Shaw, Honorary Member of the 
Board of General Purposes. His leadership and devotion to 
Masonry will long be an inspiration to all who were privileged 
to know him. 

In company with the District Secretary, I visited each 
of the nineteen Lodges in the District and was impressed 
with the high quality of the work in all the degrees and the 
sincerity of all who took part. It was gratifying to find a 
number of members from the body of the Lodge taking part 
in the ceremonies. This augers well for the quality of the 
officers of the future. The District Secretary reports the 
records and finances of the Lodges are in good condition and 
the Lodge Secretaries and Treasurers are to be commended 
for the care taken in maintaining the records of the Lodges. 

The District Chaplain, Rector of St. Paul's Church, 
Runnymede, gave splendid leadership and arranged and con- 
ducted, in his own Church, a most successful District Divine 
Service on Sunday, March 27th, and delivered a very inspiring 
sermon. We were honoured by the presence of M.W. Bro. 
Harry L. Martyn, Past Grand Master, and R. Wor. Bro. Rev. 
M. G. B. Williams, Grand Chaplain, both of whom assisted in 
the Service. Many Lodges in the District held Divine 
Services in which I was privileged to assist. 

The District Committee on Masonic Education, with the 
active support of the Wardens' Association, conducted an 
outstanding program at the District Annual Education Night 
in Annette Street Temple on December 28th, when the 
subject for the evening was "Symbolism of the First Degree". 
We were joined by Toronto District "A-2" on this occasion, 
and, in return, united with them on their Annual Night in 
College Street Temple, on March 30th. Several Lodges 
arranged full evening programs on Masonic Education in their 
own Lodges. All Lodges have Committees on Masonic Educ- 
ation and, in most of the Lodges, on the night of my Official 
Visit, short, well prepared talks were given. In some Lodges 
a talk is given at all regular and some emergent meetings. 
The bulletins issued by Grand Lodge were sent to all Lodges. 
The District is again indebted to R. Wor. Bro. Molson C. 
Cain for his very generous assistance in the work of Masonic 
Education. 

The Blood Donors' Committee Chairman was very active 
during the year and most successful in reviving many of the 
various lodge committees and in enlisting the members in 
this most important cause. 

We were honoured, in conjunction with Districts "A-2" 
and "C" to tender a reception on March 3rd, in Yonge St. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 167 

Temple, to the Grand Master, M. Wor. Bro. C. M. Pitts, who 
delivered a most inspirational address to over 400 members 
in attendance. Early in the year I was privileged to be 
present at a reception tendered our Grand Master by Kilwin- 
ning Lodge when he was made an Honorary Membe'r of that 
Lodge. 

I visited many of the Lodges on special occasions and 
had the pleasure of attending River Park Lodsre, Streetsville, 
when the Worshipful Master, W. Bro. W. F. Fogg presented 
his father R. Wor. Bro. G. R. Fogg. P.D.D.G.M. of the Grand 
Lodge of Saskatchewan with the Fiftieth Anniversary Cer- 
tificate, Pin and Scroll, on behalf of the Grand Lodge of 
Saskatchewan and River Park Lodsre in honour of R. Wor. 
Bro. Fogg's fifty years as a member of the Craft. 

Mrs. Rowe and I were happy to be guests at several 
"Ladies' Nights" and resrret we were unable to accept all 
the kind invitations extended to us. 

The appeal for the "Remembrance Memorial Building 
Fund" is being well received and I am sure many of the 
brethren will welcome the opportunity of participating in the 
erection of this "Remembrance Memorial Building". 

There were many pleasant, personal experiences during 
the year, which will long be happy memories of a very out- 
standing year in my Masonic life. 

To the officers and members of all the Lodges in the 
District, I tender my sincere thanks for a very successful 
year and congratulate them on their honest endeavour to 
present Masonry in a manner that will reflect honour on the 
Craft and on themselves. 

EDWIN A. ROWE, D.D.G.M. 

TORONTO DISTRICT "A-2" 

To have acted as the representative of the Grand Master 
in Toronto District "A-2" has been a distinct pleasure and 
a most heart-warming experience. No one could have wished 
for a more gracious reception than that which I received in 
every Lodge in the District where I found that the high re- 
gard in which our Grand Master is held is something: that 
has been merited by his own exemplification of Masonic 
ideals. 

The Lodges give careful attention to the teachings and 
principles of our Order and the conferring of the various 
degrees was meticulous and a treat to behold. The conveying 
of the message of Masonry to the candidates seemed to be 
of primary concern, a tribute to the Masonic ideal. 



168 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 



The officers of each Lodge are imbued with the spirit of 
Masonry to such an extent that the future of our Order 
is certainly assured. Without exception, the candidates 
were, in my opinion, of a calibre that Masonry demands. 

I was fortunate indeed to have as District Seci-etary, 
Wor. Bro. George Cargill, who carried out his duties in a 
careful, painstaking manner. His assistance greatly helped 
me in the carrying out of my duties, and I am sure that 
his work at the Secretaries' desks was profitable to all 
concerned. 

Masonic Education in the Lodges of the District is of 
prime importance, and it pleased me immensely to hear the 
various themes given by carefully chosen brethren. The rapt 
attention given to the subjects was indicative of healthy 
interest. 

Masonic Education at district level is kept on a high 
plane, and the Education Committee of Districts "A-l" and 
"A-2" worked very closely together. District "A-l" held an 
Education Night in Annette St. Temple which was well 
attended, and our own Education Night, under the Chairman- 
ship of W. Bro. H. E. Wilson, was held in the College Street 
Temple where again the attendance was good and the sub- 
jects were excellently presented by Rt. W. Bros. Molson Cain 
and Cleeve Hooper, assisted by the Wardens of Districts 
"A-l" and "A-2". 

Early in my term I appointed three capable speakers 
and circularized the Lodges to the effect that I hoped they 
would make use of the services of these brethren. It is my 
pleasure to report that they were kept busy, not only in 
District "A-2", but in other Districts as well. The members 
of the panel were, W. Bro. H. E. Wilson, Occident Lodge, W. 
Bro. Walter Sills, Fidelity Lodge, and the District Chaplain, 
Bro. Rev. Gordon Smyth, Melita Lodge. To these brethren I 
express my thanks. 

The large attendances at Lodges on the occasion of my 
visits were most heartening- and invariably I was accompanied 
by some of the members of District "A-2" Education Com- 
mittee, a real gratifying gesture. Inter-lodge visits were 
also the rule, usually two or three Lodges being present. 
This augurs well for friendship in the District and is a most 
pleasing aspect. On one occasion, in the absence of the 
District Secretary, I was accompanied by a very well-skilled 
Mason, V.W. Bro. Alex Braidwood, Secretary of Sunnylea 
Lodge, and his assistance was greatly appreciated. 

The Masonic Church Service on Palm Sunday was well- 
attended and we were gratified indeed to have M. Wor Bro. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 169 

Harry L. Martyn in attendance with us and he, along with 
Rt. Wor. Bro. Ed. A. Rowe, took part in the Service. 

On three occasions I was privileged to present 50-Year 
Medals and was present at the presentation of five others. 

One of my earliest official appointments was W. Bro. 
Merv. Buckingham of Transportation Lodge as Chairman of 
the Blood Donors' Committee and he reports to me that this 
meritorious objective is beginning to show good results. 

It was my very happy privilege to be present at the 
reception to our Grand Master, M.W. Bro. C. McLeod Pitts, 
in Davenport Temple on March 3rd. This large gathering 
of Masons was amply repaid for their attendance by the 
gracious manner and timely message of our Grand Master. 
The Committep of this combined effort of Districts "A-l", 
"A-2", and "C", under the Chairmanship of W. Bro. Dave 
Forrester, are to be highly complimented on a beautiful 
and interesting evening. 

It was a distinct honour to me to institute a new Lodsce 
at Weston on Wednesday, March 30th, — The Lodge of the 
Pillars — and I was ably assisted by present and Past Grand 
Lodge Officers. 

The Grand Master's Remembrance Memorial Fund Pro- 
ject has been, in a large measure, brought to the attention 
of all the Lodges in the District and should have gratifying 
results from the keen interest evinced. 

The problem of parking facilities at the various Temples 
is one that concerns all members and this, along with 
problems of transportation, is one that could very well take 
up the attention of Lodges in the whole Metropolitan Area. 

Again I re-iterate my heartfelt thanks for having been 
accorded the privilege of representing our Grand Master in 
Toronto District "A-2". 

JOHN URQUHART, D.D.G.M. 



TORONTO DISTRICT "B-l" 

It has been a privilege to have served my brethren of 
Toronto District "B-l" as the representative of the Most 
Worshipful the Grand Master. The cordial and gracious 
reception given to me in all the fifteen Lodges evinced the 
loyalty and esteem of the brethren for the Grand Master and 
Grand Lodge. 



170 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

The appointment of W. Bro. Clarence E. Leek as District 
Secretary brought the business experience which proved so 
valuable and necessary in reviewing the records and financial 
reports of the Lodges. His thorough examination into records 
of the various Lodges enabled me to make useful and 
accurate comments when I summarized the findings to the 
brethren. 

Degree work was conferred by every Lodge in the 
District on the evening of my official visit, and the work on 
each occasion was exemplified in an able, impressive and 
uniform manner. I found the Masters and officers well 
skilled, and ably assisted by the Past Masters, who truly are 
the guiding light of every Lodge. It was a distinct pleasure 
to commend the Officers, Past Masters, and brethren, at the 
close of the degree work. 

During the year two Masonic Educational meetings were 
held (one in each District) under the joint Chairmanship of 
W. Bro. William Evanson, Past Master of Bay of Quinte 
Lodge, District "B-l" and W. Bro. Stanley Cecil, Past Master 
of Dentonia Lodge, District "B-2". These brethren were 
ably assisted by W. Bro. H. Smart of the Beaches Lodge and 
W. Bro. L. Beek of Wexford Lodge, who acted as secretaries 
for the respective District Educational Chairman. The man- 
ner of holding joint meetings with the brethren of District 
"B-2" once more proved popular and very successful. Both 
meetings were well attended. The Chairmen and Secretaries, 
together with all members of the Educational Committee, 
deserve our sincere appreciation and thanks. 

Early in mv year, I had the pleasure of addressing the 
Masters' and Wardens' of the combined Districts. This op- 
poi*tunity enabled me to outline my program for the ensuing 
year and at the same time to offer enlightenment on several 
controversial ritual problems. This address, as well as 
addresses on the occasion of each official visit, were meant 
to be for the good of Masonry in the District. 

Early in November of 1959 we were saddened with the 
sudden passing of R.W. Bro. John Ness. Although, I am 
aware that his passing will receive suitable recognition from 
the Chairman of the Fraternal Dead, I feel that as he had 
served as a Past Master of Caledonia Lodge, and as a Past 
D.D.G.M. of Toronto District "B", I should make some com- 
ment in my District Report. 

R.W. Bro. Ness was an Honourary Member of the Board 
of General Purposes of Grand Lodge. His work and prowess 
as a writer were known to Masons across Canada. His contri- 
bution to the welfare of fellow Masons in his beloved District, 
to those in this Grand Jurisdiction, and indeed throughout all 
Canada will long be remembered, and his going from us has 
been an inestimable loss.

"To live in the hearts of those you leave behind is not 
to die." 



It was my happy privilege to attend several Church 
Services held by Lodges in our District. On these occasions 
I was called upon to read the lesson. On March 21st, our 
Annual Church Service was held in Leaside United Church. 
Bro. Eeverend Charles Murray, the District Chaplain and 
Minister of Leaside United Church, conducted the Service. 
R.W. Bro. Henry Saunders, D.D.G.M. of District "B-2" and I 
had the pleasure of assisting in the Service. Bro. Reverend 
Charles Murray delivered an inspiring address to over 350 
attentive Masons. It was truly the highlight of my year as 
D.D.G.M. and a credit to Masonry in general. 

It has become increasingly evident that something must 
be done to alleviate the critical lack of lodge room accom- 
modation in all the Toronto Districts. I sincerely believe 
that if lodge dues were brought up to a more realistic figure, 
sufficient reserves could be accumulated, so when the need 
arises funds would be available for the purpose of building 
new Temples and maintaining some of our present Temples 
in better condition. I would strongly recommend that ail 
Lodges give serious consideration to this important matter. 

It was my pleasure to attend many fraternal visits in 
addition to the official ones. Mrs. Arthur, Mrs. Leek, the 
District Secretary and I enjoyed the privilege of attending 
the many Ladies' Nights held by the Lodges in our District. 
Such meetings do much to exemplify the finer aspects of 
Brotherly Love, the time meaning of Masonic Character. 

Richardson Lodge, No. 136, Stouffville, will be 100 years 
old on June 16th of this year. Plans are already under way 
for our Grand Master to assist in the celebrations on the 28th 
of September. We wish them every success for the future. 

To conclude this report, I would express my opinion that 
the condition of Masonry in the fifteen Lodges comprising 
Toronto District "B-l" is excellent. At this time I wish to 
commend the Past Masters of the District for their untiring 
efforts to assist the officers and brethren of our District in 
their endeavours to make meetings more interesting. The 
many kindnesses extended to me are deeply appreciated, and 
it is my hope that in some small measure that I have been 
successful in maintaining the high spirit of Masonry in our 
District.

TORONTO DISTRICT "B-2" 

Last July when Most Worshipful Brother W. J. Dunlop, 
P.G.M., was addressing- the newly elected District Deputy 
Grand Masters, I had the feeling of incompletion. We had 
reached the end of a certain period; we felt that we were just 
at the beginning- of a new ore. This feeling seemed to be a 
reflection of the real meaning of the science of Masonry, 
that nothing is ever completed, but ever completing. I 
approached my duties, therefore, with the sense that there 
was much to be learned, and with the hope that in some way 
I mig-ht make a contribution for the good of the Craft. 

I must give thanks to Et. Wor. Bro. Robert Elsie and V.W. 
Bro. James Meek for their advice and for the useful inform- 
ation supplied, to M.W. Bro. Harry L. Martyn, Custodian of 
the Work, for his advice and guidance which gave assurance 
that the year ahead could be a very happy one. This has 
been proven, for my year as District Deputy Grand Master 
was a very desirable experience. It was rich in friendship 
and a pleasant, gratifying and thrilling experience. 

The appointment of W. Bro. Linwood Lloyd, as District 
Secretary, brought to the position 46 years of Masonic know- 
ledge and experience, as well as years of business experience. 
His advice, efficiency and his long association with the Lodges 
in the District added greatly to the success. His reports on 
the condition of the records and accounts of the various 
Lodges indicated the efficiency with which the Secretaries 
and Treasurers were carrying out their respective duties. 

The Installation Ceremonies of the Lodges were observed 
with competence and dignity. In every Lodge there was an 
air of confidence among the members that the right man 
had been chosen to fill his respective office. The officers 
were enthusiastic; they obviously were facing the coming 
year with confidence and a willingness to do their best. 

At the inspection of each Lodge, the work was carried 
out with commendable deportment. The officers displayed 
considerable self-reliance and knowledge in their work. They, 
and those members assisting, performed their various duties 
with pride and efficiency. In each Lodge the members, or 
side-benchers, as we often describe them, gave excellent 
support to the Master and his officers. By their attendance 
and support, they created a strong morale and a vigorous 
fraternal atmosphere, which gave to all who were taking 
part in the degrees the confidence and the will to do their 
best work. 

The efficiency of the District Secretary is of prime im- 
portance in the work of inspections. W. Bro. Lloyd, again 
and again, proved to be an enormous help to me, with his 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 173 

clear and concise reports which so readily gave me the in- 
formation I most wanted to note and to comment upon. His 
reports indicate the growth of the District: — Initiations — 170, 
Restorations — 1, Affiliations — 56, total — 227. It is well to 
note that most of these affiliations were by members who had 
previously taken their demits from other Lodges or who are 
members of Lodges in the Old Country. From this statement 
may be deducted a total of 134: — 64 deaths, 42 demits and 
28 suspensions. Over the year, therefore, there was an in- 
crease of 93. There are now 4,120 members in Toronto 
District "B-2". Another interesting feature of the Secre- 
tary's report is his record of attendance. This account is 
based on the average attendance at meetings in the District:- 
Past Masters 158, membei^s 827, visitors 391. In comparison 
with the previous year, these figures show the following; an 
increase of 8 for the Past Masters, 25 for the members and a 
decrease of 22 for the visitors. 

The members of "B-2" are to be congratulated on the 
splendid type of officers they have elected, and the Masters 
and officers are to be complimented on the excellent manner 
in which they are conducting the affairs of their respective 
Lodges. 

Turning to the field of Masonic Education, I found in 
every Lodsre that there was some programme of instruction. 
The material sent by the Chairman of Masonic Education, 
R. Wor. Bro. B. .B Foster was very much appreciated by the 
Lodges. In the wider field, the Masonic Education Com- 
mittee of District "B-2" worked jointly with the Masonic 
Education Committee of District "B-l". The Chairman of 
District "B-2" is Wor. Bro. Stanley Cecil, who was ably 
assisted by the Secretary, Wor. Bro. Lewis Beak. In Toronto 
District "B-l", Masonic Education was under the direction 
of the Chairman, Wor. Bro. Wm. Evanson and his Secre- 
tary, Wor. Bro. Hubert Smart. To these men I give sincere 
thanks for a job well done. Two combined meetings were 
held and, as is the custom, one was held in the city, the 
other in a suburban Lode-e. The first meeting, in Yonge 
Temple, was held under the sponsorship of Bay of Quinte 
Lodge. At this meeting the ritual of the Fellowcraft Degree 
was discussed. The second meeting was sponsored by Mark- 
ham Union Lodge, at which the Master Mason's Degree was 
exemplified with full ex-planations. It was indeed a thrill 
for R.W. Bro. John Arthur and me that such a large number 
of brethren attended these meetings. 

During the year several of the Lodges held Divine 
Services. Toronto District "B-2" Church Service was held 
at Manor Road United Church. The Service was conducted 
by the District Chaplain and Minister of the Church, Bro. 
Rev. Roy F. Hicks, assisted by R.W. Bro. John Arthur, and 
myself. I assisted at the Service of Toronto District "B-l" 



174 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

which was held in Leaside United Church under the guidance 
of the Minister and Chaplain of District "B-l", Bro. Rev. 
Charles C. Murray and R.W. Bro. John Arthur. 

I noted that all Services, those of the individual Lodges 
and the Districts, were well attended by the brethren. This 
is a good sign and it was specially pleasing to see so many 
Grand Lodge officers, P.G.M's., and other past Grand Lodge 
officers present. 

I had the feeling when coming into the anteroom, where 
the brethren were gathering prior to entering the lodge 
room, that I was among friends, for there was always an 
air of friendship, of respect and good fellowship, and, when 
I entered the lodge room, I was received as an honoured 
guest. 

At Scarborough Lodge, later in the month while waiting 
in the anteroom, W. Bro. Lloyd and I had the enjoyment of 
a long conversation with M. Wor. Bro. Pitts. He has the 
happy faculty of making you feel at ease. He demonstrated 
that first of all qualities of character, that greatness is 
simple sincere and friendly. He has that quality about his 
whole personality which makes us silently hope that he 
would number us among his friends. He wears the mantle 
of his office with honour and dignity. 

It was my pleasure, accompanied by Mi's. Saunders. Mrs. 
Lloyd and W. Bro. Lloyd, to attend many Ladies' Nights. 
In the Book of Constitution are to be found those words 
"Masonry is the happy means of conciliating friendships 
amongst those who must otherwise have remained at a 
perpetual distance'.' Never were words more applicable 
than these for, at a Ladies' Night, we forget all differences 
w T e may have had; we are there as one big family, the 
purpose being to honour our ladies and see that everyone 
has an enjoyable evening. These friendships that we form 
are immeasurable; we cannot tell just w r hen they take place; 
they just happen. They thrive simply because only in 
generosity of mind and spirit can we sense how the other 
person feels. It is this spirit of friendship which makes it 
worthwhile to attend our Ladies' Nights. 

I conclude my report with these thoughts and impres- 
sions. Masonry is the one society in which a man is free 
to demonstrate, exhibit or use his talents. If he is a leader, 
he has the opportunity of working through the various 
offices to the chair of Worshipful Master. If he is an 
organizer, there are the various lodge committees. To build 
attendance, he may call his brethren and invite them to 
attend their Lodge. A a singer, he has the opportunity to 
sing. To improve the morals of men, he can demonstrate by 
his own actions. If he would like welfare work, there is the 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 175 

sick brother to visit. To prove his talents in any way, he 
may ask for the opportunity. No one will find fault. 

We officers should never overlook the members who 
sit on the North and South. We should realize their latent 
power and importance. It is their support and attendance 
that carry our Lodges. 

We must always consider the new member. What does 
he think of us ? What are his impressions of the work ? 
Will this candidate, after he has received his degrees, ap- 
preciate Masonry as much as he hoped, before becoming a 
member ? 

When one enters a lodge room he should remember that 
he is now entering a consecrated place and should act ac- 
cordingly. 

Masonry teaches us to think, of others, of our relation- 
ship with others, of ourselves and how we should live. 
Because of the tenets and principles which are taught in 
the Order, we should at all times feel proud that we are 
Masons. 

To the Past Masters, Masters, Wardens and members 
of every Lodge in Toronto District "B-2", I give my grate- 
ful thanks for the honour of being permitted to act as 
District Deputy Grand Master for the past year. 

W. H. SAUNDERS, D.D.G.M. 



TORONTO DISTRICT "C" 

In reporting to vou on the condition of Masonry in 
Toronto District "C", I do so with a sense of gratitude in my 
heart for all those who have made this the outstanding year 
of my life. 

During the year I visited all Lodges in the District 
and found all of them working in an authorized manner and 
conducting degrees with great skill and ability. In all of my 
visits I endeavoured to encourage Masonic Education so that 
the brethren would have a better understanding- of Free- 
masonry and learn more of the truths hidden in the ritual 
and symbolism of our Fraternity. I referred to the Grand 
Lodge Library and asked the brethren to make more use 
of its facilities. 

Attendance in some Lodees showed an increase over the 
previous year but generally the average was the same as the 
previous year with a few Lodges showing a decrease. I 
urged the brethren to overcome this problem by bringing 



176 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

someone along with them to Lodge and by contacting the 
brethren who had not been to Lodge recently. 

I am pleased to report that three rural Lodges are 
considering the building of new temples with adequate park- 
ing facilities. Some thought should be given to the future 
of the temples located in Toronto, which are overcrowded and 
many of them lack proper parking facilities, which in this 
day and age are an essential part of every temple. 

One of my first duties was to assist in the constituting 
and consecrating of Harry L. Martyn Lodge, and later in the 
year I had the honour of instituting The Lodge of Fellowship. 
Two district meetings on Masonic Education were held at 
which the following subjects were dealt with: 1. Balloting 
on Candidates, 2. Masonic Jurisprudence, 3. Mechanics, 
History and Philosophy of the Master Mason's Degree. 
Both meetings were well attended and proved of interest to 
the brethren. 

A District Church Service was held in the Church of 
our District Chaplain, W. Bro. The Rev. Gordon King, and 
was well supported by the District. I attended many Ladies' 
Nights and Church Services throughout the District and was 
graciously received on all occasions. A reception was tender- 
ed the Most Worshipful Grand Master by the Lodges of 
Toronto Districts "A-l", "A-2" and "C" at which over 400 
brethren attended. Rising Sun Lodge, Aurora, celebrated 
its 100th anniversary and I was privileged to accompany the 
Grand Master on this occasion. 

The opportunity to participate in the Remembrance 
Memorial Building Fund was well received by the brethren 
and, while returns are slow coming in, there is promise that 
this District will be well represented. 

I had the opportunity of installing the President of 
the Central Masonic Bureau and of addressing them briefly. 
I would urge a greater support of the Past Masters' As- 
sociation by the Past Masters in Toronto. This is an 
organization worthy of the support of every Past Master 
and of great assistance in the preparation for Grand Lodge 
each year. 

I would pay tribute to my friend and assistant this 
past year, W. Bro. Arch. J. Cobban, District Secretary, who 
woi'ked so hard to assist the Lodges in the District and myself 
in the discharge of my responsibilities. To the Masonic 
Education Committee, *M.W. Bro. Harry L. Martyn, the 
Librarian, R.W. Bro. Molson Cain and all those who^ sup- 
ported me on my travels about the District I say a sincere 
thank you to each and every one. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO. 1960 177 

Finally. Most Worshipful Sir, I say thank you for the 
privilege of having represented you in this District and 
the opportunity it has afforded me to serve my brethren 
and the Craft. 

HARRY T. BLUMSOM, D.D.G.M. 



TORONTO DISTRICT "D" 

Just as life's little day ebbs swiftly to its close, so my 
term as D.D.G.M. passes into history, thus ending a year 
which has been filled to overflowing with challenging op- 
portunities, rewarding experiences and pleasant memories. 

I am most grateful to the Masters and brethren of the 
twenty-five Lodges of the District for their co-operation and 
support, and for the warn, sincere welcome extended to me 
as I visited the various Lodges. 

My choice of District Secretary, W. Bro. Don. Cormack, 
was an excellent one and proved to be very popular with 
the brethren. Sincere and devoted to duties of his office, 
W. Bro. Cormack has been a very capable Secretary and his 
meticulous handling of the many duties has added in no 
small measure to any success which may have been attained. 

Another wise choice was W. Bro. George Lennox^who, 
as in the previous year, was Chairman of Masonic Education. 
In addition to his efforts to promote Masonic Education in 
the individual Lodges, he organized two very successful 
"Lodges of Instruction". The first of these was sponsored 
by St. George Lodge on October 29th, and the second by 
Palestine Lodge on March 30th. 

As District Chaplain, I appointed Rev. Fred Douglas, 
B.A., Minister of St. Paul's Presbyterian Church, and present 
Senior Warden of Huron-Bruce Lodge. The District Divine 
Service was held April 24th in St. Paul's Church with the 
District Chaplain in charge. M.W. Bro. Harry L. Martyn 
and the D.D.G.M. also took part in the Service. Six Lodges 
also held Divine Services and each of these I attended, 
accompanied by my wife. 

Early in the year, the Grand Master expressed a desire 
to have the brethren, once again, become interested in the 
donating of blood to the Red Cross. I am deeply grateful 
to V.W. Bro. Vic. Ridgway, Tuscan Lodge, who readily agreed 
to act as Chairman of our Blood Donors' Service, and the 
renewed interest in this Masonic Charity is due to his efforts. 
There are now 454 signed Donors' in the District with 
Antiquity Lodge in the lead. 



173 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

As the year progressed there were many pleasant ex- 
periences some of which are worthy of special mention. 
It was a very pleasant experience to accompany the Deputy 
Grand Master, the Grand Secretary and others on their 
visit to Palestine Lodge on the occasion of the visit of the 
Grand Master and Deputy Grand Master of the Grand Lodge 
of the State of Israel. Another event worthy of special 
mention was the Anniversary Celebration which marked the 
seventy-fifth milestone in the life of Zeta Lodge. It was 
indeed a thrill to be part of the vast number of Masons 
gathered to pay tribute to a Lodge which has made such 
a wonderful contribution to Masonry for three quarters of a 
century. The banquet hour address by M.W. Bro. Maher 
was one we shall not soon forget. 

During the year I visited each Lodge at least once and 
some as many as three times. I am pleased to report that 
Masonry in the District is of a very high calibre, and there 
seems to be a greater desire on the part of the Junior Officers 
for excellence in the degree work. This I tried to encourage 
as I spoke to the brethren in the lodge rooms. 

Words fail to pay tribute to the wonderful organizing 
abilities of the Worshipful Masters. With but two except- 
ions, the D.D.G.M. was received at a reasonable hour, and 
in every Lodge the work was so arranged that it could be 
carried out with dispatch yet with dignity. This I also 
tried to encourage. 

The balance-wheel of any organization is the Secretary 
and certainly the Secretaries are playing their part nobly and 
well. The reports of the District Secretary and the excellent 
monthly summonses of each Lodge are ample proof cf the 
efficient work being done. 

I am most grateful for the many courtesies shown me 
during the year and particularly those I was permitted to 
share with my wife, and in most instances, with the District 
Secretary and Mrs. Cormack. As honoured guests of the 
Lodges holding Ladies' Nights, we enjoyed ourselves to the 
full, and it was a real pleasure to share with the brethren 
during the hours of refreshment. 

I would like to comment at some length with respect to 
lodge room accomodation, parking facilities and, in some 
instances, prohibitive rental charges, but space does not 
permit. 

In conclusion, may I say that if I have made any "Foot- 
prints in the Sands of Time" with respect to Masonry, it 
has been made possible by the loyalty of my appointed 
officers and the co-operation and support I have enjoyed 
from my brethren of Toronto District "D". To one and all, 
my very sincere thanks. 

A. E. CALVERLEY, D.D.G.M. 



TORONTO. ONTARIO, 1960 179 

VICTORIA DISTRICT 

I desire to render an account of my stewardship and 
my impresions of the condition of Masonry in Victoria 
District. 

Early in my year I appointed Wor. Bro. R. Pursey 
Rilance of Murray Lodge as my District Secretary. He has 
been very helpful and willing: to assist in every way possible 
up to the time of his illness which kept him in hospital 
for some time near the end of my year. 

Also, early in my year I appointed Bro. Rev. C. J. 
Beckley of Harding- Lodge, Woodville, as my District 
Chaplain. Here again I had a very helpful and willing as- 
sistant. He gave two wonderful addresses at two of my 
meetings and then, to cap it all, a very wonderful sermon 
on the creed of a Mason at our Annual District Church 
Service, May 29th, which was very well attended by the 
brethren of the District and neighbouring Lodges. 

I appointed Wor. Bro. G. K. Johnson, Chairman of our 
District Committee on Masonic Education, an office which 
he filled in a very capable and efficient manner and to my 
entire satisfaction. He gave several addresses during the 
year which were very well received. He organized and put 
over our District Educational Night in January which took 
the form of a panel discussion of the lecture in the South 
with R. Woi\ Bro. W. K. Bailey as Moderator. This meeting 
brought forth a lot of favotirable comment throughout the 
District. It is hoped that this is the beginning of a very 
worthwhile annual event or possibly more often. 

I have visited every Lodge in the District and I am 
pleased to report that the work of the Masters and their 
officers has been of a very excellent quality. I had the 
pleasure of observing all three degrees done in a very com- 
mendable way and I give a lot of credit to our Wardens' 
Association for the wonderful uniformity of the work 
throughout the District. Of coui'se some credit must go to 
the Lodges of Instruction held in the District some time ago. 
I would suggest that they be started asyain that the new 
officers coming up might have the benefit of these Lodges 
of Instruction. 

I appointed Bro. H. Campbell of Murray Lodg-e as 
District Chairman of Blood Donors. Bro. Campbell put 
considerable work into this project but the response was not 
good. Three Lodges in the District took time to answer 
his letters. I know that some brethren of the District 
donated blood but I do not know the number. 



180 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

One of the highlights of my term of office was the 
dedication of the Temple of North Entrance Lodge in Hali- 
burton in which I assisted R. Wor. Bro. Molson Cain in this 
very impressive ceremony. R. Wor. Bro. Geo. J. McQueen 
was Director of Ceremonies on this occasion and, as usual, 
did a gi'and job. I had the pleasure to sit in on the dedic- 
ation of the "new Temple of Fidelity Lodge in Port Perry 
where the Grand Master presided. This was another big 
night for me to be able to sit in and observe this wonderful 
ceremony. The biggest highlight of my entire term of 
office was the reception of the Grand Master in Victoria 
District, held at Beaverton on April 2Cth, at which the 
District was very well represented. A large number of the 
brethren showed their appreciation and loyalty to their 
Grand Master and listened to an outstanding address by 
Most Wor. Bro. C. M. Pitts, Grand Master. After the recep- 
tion V. Wor. Bro. A. W. (Jack) Baker invited the brethren 
to come to his home for a brief visit and fraternize with our 
Grand Master and R. Wor. Bro. B. Lishman, who were 
staving overnight with V. Wor. Bro. Baker, who is an old 
friend. 

I now wish to express my sincere thanks to Victoria 
District for the very high honour they have conferred on me 
in electing me D.D.G.M. of Victoria District. It is a year 
that I shall cherish and remember as long as I live. 

CEPHAS DOHERTY, D.D.G.M. 



WELLINGTON DISTRICT 

The genuine and most cordial reception tendered to me 
on all visits to the twenty-two Lodges of Wellington District 
evinced the loyalty and esteem of the brethren for the Grand 
Master and Grand Lodge. 

My appointment of Wor. Bro. Lyle Miller as District 
Secretary has proven an exceptional choice. He has faith- 
fully visited with me on every occasion and has given 
freely of his time and energy in carrying out the duties of 
his important office. He also served as District Chairman 
of the Blood Donors' Committee. 

The Supervisor of Masonic Education, Wor. Bro. A. T. 
Prestwich, and his committee held five successful educational 
meetings last fall. These meetings consisted of smaller 
groups, (four or five lodges) and were well attended. Each 
meeting was convened by a sub-district chairman with the 
purpose in mind of giving wider participation by interested 
brethren speaking on various topics which were deemed to 
be of timely concern to all Masons. Thirtv-two brethren 
presented the various topics for discussion which took place 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 181 

at all meetings, and a great deal of interest was created. 
A district meeting was also held this spring and proved to 
be of considerable merit by those brethren in attendance. 
All Lodges have a Masonic Education Committee, and it is 
encouraging to note the continually increasing interest which 
is being shown in each Ledge. Bro. Rev. F. Paul Erb, the 
District Chaplain, was a most interested and interesting 
travelling companion and was a real inspiration to me and to 
all whom he met. The District Divine Service was held in 
Zion Church, New Hamburg, and the large number of 
Masons present enjoyed the inspiring address delivered by 
the District Chaplain, entitled "God's Perfecting of Life". 
I am also grateful to the members of Speed Lodge Masonic 
Choir who assisted in the musical portion of the Service. 
A number of Lodge Divine Services were held in the District 
and were well attended. 

I am most happy to report that Masonry in this District 
is in good hands and I have tried to encourage members who 
are not officers to participate and contribute in some way 
to the betterment of Masonry. I have at all times been 
encouraged by the faithful attendance of Masters.^ Past 
Masters, Officers and members of the Lodges of the District, 
for which I wish to express my sincere gratitude. 

It has been a privilege for me to have served as D.D.G.M. 
and I will continue in my efforts to serve Freemasonry to the 
best of my ability. 

BRUCE J. OMAND, D.D.G.M. 



WESTERN DISTRICT 

The honour of serving as District Deputy Grand Master 
for Western District has been a wonderful experience for me, 
and I wish to express my thanks to the brethren of the 
District for the confidence they placed in me. 

I had the pleasure of appointing Wor. Bro. J. K. Forbes, 
as District Secretary, Bro. James W. Whitford as District 
Chaplain, and V. Wor Bro. P. E. Baker as District Super- 
visor of Masonic Education. I am very deeply indebted to 
these brethren for the help and support they gave me 
during the year. 

Wor. Bro. Forbes accompanied me on all my official 
visits. He informed me that all books and records of each 
Lodge were checked and found to be in good order, that 
each Lodge is in good financial condition, but one Lodge 
which has a loan, but has been able to meet the payment 
on the loan, that all Lodges are well insured against fire 
and damage. The District Chaplain was able to accompany 



182 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

us on five of my visits and the Supervisor of Masonic 
Education on four. 

I was very much impressed by the enthusiastic reception 
I received from each Lodge on my official visits. During my 
visits the three degrees were conferred and the standard of 
the work was of a very high order. Most of the Lodges 
have brethren assist in the work who do not hold office 
which helps to keep the attendance up. 

Masonic Education is still improving in the District. 
The majority of the Lodges are devoting more of their time 
on Masonic instruction and questions. The Past Masters' 
Association is very active in this work. Pequonga Lodge, 
No. 414, had the honor of regaining the shield this year from 
Granite Lodge, No. 446, which had held it for the past two 
years. I thank V. Wor. Bro. Baker very much for the work 
he has done in looking after Masonic Education for the 
District. 

The highlights during the year were; first when the 
Deputy Grand Master, the Hon. Mr. Justice Treleaven, when 
in Kenora, on his official duties, addressed a large gathering 
of the brethren at an informal meeting on October 21st. 
Then on October 26th, when in Fort Frances, he addressed 
the brethren of the southern part of the District at an in- 
formal meeting; second, during my visit to Chukuni Lodge, 
No. 660, the Worshipful Master had the honor and pleasure 
of initiating his two sons into the mysteries of Freemasonry 
which I believe is history for Western District; thirdly I had 
the pleasure of presenting Bro. G. W. Armstrong of Keewatin 
Lodge with his 50 Year Medal: Finally, Sioux Lookout Lodge, 
No. 518, made the final payment on their loan on their new 
Temple. I congratulate the members of No. 518 for their 
fine showing in such a short time. 

The District Divine Service was held in the St. James, 
Anglican Church, Keewatin, on June 5th, at 11 a.m. The 
District Chaplain conducted the Service, which was well 
attended by the brethren from all Lodges in the District. A 
Divine Service was held also by each Lodge in the District 
during the year. 

I am of the same opinion as my predecessor. Rt. Wor. 
Bro. J. B. Fraser, that for the betterment of Masonry in 
the District Lodges with more than two hundred members 
which have a large jurisdiction from which to draw candid- 
ates should share it with another new Lodge. It would give 
the brethren a better opportunity to participate in the work 
and would increase the interest in the Lodges. These three 
Lodges. Pequonga, No. 414, Lake of the Woods, No. 445, and 
Keewatin, No. 417, have consented to concurrent jurisdiction, 
and their application has been placed before the Committee 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 183 

on Constitution and Laws for consideration and recommend- 
ation to Grand Lodge. 

Finally, I wish to thank the Grand Master for confirming 1 
my election, also all the brethren for their assistance and 
co-operation they gave me during the past year. The ex- 
perience I have gained I shall remember in the years to 
come. 

CECIL G. GALLOWAY, D.D.G.M. 



WILSON DISTRICT 

I thank the members of Wilson District for the honour 
and privilege of serving as their D.D.G.M. It has been a 
most rewarding experience. The Grand Master and Grand 
Lodge can certainly be proud of the high esteem in which 
they are held in this District The sincere and dignified 
manner in which I was received on every occasion bespeaks 
the feelings of every brother. 

The appointment of Wor. Bro. Norman McLeod as 
District Secretary proved to be an excellent choice. He 
performed the duties of his office with an enthusiasm that 
merited every promise and trust which I had in him, and he 
has certainly won for himself the sincere esteem of his 
brethren. While the D.D.G.M. is the recipient of a high 
honour, we must not forget the great contribution to the 
District which is given by the District Secretary. 

Wor. Bro. Andrew Cody willingly accepted the office of 
District Chaplain, and his kind and gracious manner could 
not help but make us, as Masons, realize our responsibilities 
to the Great Architect. It was also my pleasure to have 
Wor. Bro. A. G. MeCorquodale travel with me as the Super- 
visor of Masonic Education, he, being one of the members 
with the most years of service in my Mother Lodge and 
having an active interest in many branches of Freemasonry, 
was well qualified for his duties. 

The highlight of the year for Wilson District took place 
on March 31st^ at Inprersoll, when we had the honour of 
receiving the Grand Master, M.W. Bro. C. M. Pitts. He 
arrived in the afternoon to unveil the Cornerstone of a 
soacious new Temple erected by the brethren of King Hiram, 
No. 37, and St. Johns, No. 68. Following the unveiling, a 
dinner reception was held at which time the Grand Master 
addressed the gathering of 350 Masons, and his genial 
personality and kindly greetings made a lasting impression 
on the brethren. It was also our pleasure to have the Grand 
Master, assisted by present and past Grand Lodge Officers, 
dedicate the new Ingersoll Temple. 



184 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

On June 3rd, there was also another happy event when 
M.W. Bro. Harry Martyn dedicated the new Temple of Doric 
Lodge, No. 569, Lakeside. The major part of the construct- 
ion of this new edifice was carried out by the brethren of 
Lakeside and we are most proud of this united accomplish- 
ment. 

Several of the Lodges held Ladies' Nights, and on these 
occasions Mrs. McCall and I were guests. May I express to 
the brethren of these Lodges our appreciation for the many 
kindnesses and courtesies extended to us. 

The Past Masters' and Wardens' Association is contribut- 
ing, in no small measure, in promoting by their fine example 
all worthwhile endeavours to keep Masonry flourishing an« 
advancing in Wilson District. 

And briefly, I must add that, having visited the twenty- 
three Lodges in my District, I was pleased with the uniform- 
ity of the work and with the sincerity and harmony which 
existed between the Masters and their officers. I am most 
deeply indebted to the present and past Grand Lodge Officers 
and their willing assistance, in particular to our Assistant 
Grand Chaplain V. W. Rev. Bro. Shields, who blessed several 
of my visits with his inspiring words. 

And finally, may I express my sincere appreciation to 
the Grand Secretary's Office for the prompt assistance given 
me on my many official functions during the year, and to all 
of the brethren of Wilson District "thank you" again. You 
have indeed been most kind to me. 

BRUCE M. McCALL, D.D.G.M. 
WINDSOR DISTRICT 

It has been a signal honour to represent the Grand 
Master in Windsor District during the past year. The cord- 
ial and warm welcome which I received at every visitation 
illustrated the respect with which Grand Lodge is regarded 
by the brethren of Windsor District. 

Immediately upon assuming office, I appointed Wor. Bro. 
C. Flett as my District Secretary and he has fulfilled his 
duties in a most satisfactory manner. He has been a tower 
of strength to me and has accompanied me on all my numer- 
ous visitations. He assures me that the Lodges are in good 
financial condition and that records have been well kept. 

The Committee on Masonic Education was under the 
excellent guidance of Wor. Bros. Jarrett and Howe. _ These 
two brethren gave numerous talks on Masonic Education and 
are to be highly congratulated for the splendid work they 
performed. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 185 

Rev. Bro. C. J. Draper was the Chaplain for the District, 
and I wish to thank him for the manner in which he dis- 
charged his duties. 

I attended Windsor Lodge, No. 403, on September 4th, 
and presented a square and compasses on behalf of the widow 
of R.W. Bro. A. P. Mclntyre, P.D.D.G.M., who passed to the 
Grand Lodge Above on March 29th, 1959. I also presented 
five 50 Year Medals at this time. 

I attended two Junior Wardens' Nights, one Senior 
Wardens' Night and one Masters' Night, at which the work 
was beautifully done, and I'm sure that the conduct of the 
District Lodges will be in good hands for some years to 
come. 

I presented, on behalf of Great Western Lodge, No. 47, 
four Fifty Year Medals to brethren who had all been initiated 
on the same date fifty years ago. At this meeting there 
were also thirteen members present who had previously 
received their Fifty Year Medals. 

I visited each Lodge on several occasions and it has 
become the custom to try and close all meetings by 10 o'clock 
so that the members can then enjoy a period of fraterniz- 
ation. I sincerely hope that this custom will continue in the 
ensuing years. The work has been well done and I can 
assure Grand Lodge that the condition of Masonry is ex- 
cellent in Windsor District. 

I was invited to visit various Lodges in other Districts 
by the D.D.G.M. of the District; these included visits to 
Chatham, Thamesville and Wallaceburg. I attended the 
dedication of new lodge rooms at Watford and also a new 
Temple at Thedford. I also attended a very interesting meet- 
ing at Petrolia when Bro. J. C. Reid of Windsor received his 
Fifty Year Medal from his Mother Lodge on an evening 
which I'm certain he will never forget. At this meeting 
sixty brethren from Windsor attended and the meeting was 
preceded by a very delightful dinner. 

On March 29, Windsor District was highly honoured by a 
visit from M. Wor. Bro. Clarence McL. Pitts, our beloved 
Grand Master. This reception and dinner was well attended 
by about 400 Masons. The Grand Master spoke at the 
dinner, and I'm sure that the brethren will long remember 
his magnificent talk. His visit was greatly enjoyed and to 
him Windsor District is deeply grateful. 

The District Divine Service was held at the Salvation 
Army Citadel for the first time. Bro. Hutchison, a Brigadier 
in the Salvation Army, conducted the Service and spoke in a 



186 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

very interesting 1 manner. The Service was very well attend- 
ed and was enjoyed by all. 

On May 28th, I enjoyed being presented at Lebanon 
Forest Lodge's Centennial at Exeter, which was also in the 
form of a reception for the Grand Master. Present were 
several members of Grand Lodge and five D.D.G.M's. Thei*e 
was a wonderful dinner followed by a most interesting mes- 
sage from the Grand Master. 

In conclusion, I wish to thank every Mason in Windsor 
District for a very wonderful year and to expresss to Grand 
Lodge the opinion that Masonry in the District is of the 
highest calibre.

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON 
WARRANTS 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. J. N. 
Allan, Chairman, and on motion of the Deputy Grand 
Master, seconded by R.W. Bro. Allan, it was received 
and adopted. 

i 

i 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge A.F. & A.M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

It is again a pleasure for me to submit the report of 
your Committee on Wan-ants for the year ended May 31, 
1960. 

Applications for Warrants have been received from 3 
Lodges. These Lodges have been operating under dispens- 
ation granted by the Most Worshipful the Grand Master. 

It was gratifying as it always is to receive these ap- 
plications. Your Committee is strongly of the opinion that 
growth in the number of Lodges in our Grand Jurisdiction 
is desirable, in fact, necessary for the well being of the Craft. 
It is with some regret your Committee noted that the number 
of applications during the past year was fewer than those 
received during any of the 4 previous years. We therefore 
urge interested Brethren to encourage the institution of New 
Lodges \vhei*e after due consideration such appears desirable. 
We would again remind the brethren that members of smaller 
Lodges have more opportunity to participate in the work of 



TORONTO. ONTARIO, 1960 187 

the Lodge and that such participation is likely to increase 
the general interest of the members. 

The records of the Lodges applying for warrants were 
again excellent — all complied with the regulations of Grand 
Lodge that a bound (not loose leaf) minute book and a proper 
membership ledger be used. It was gratifying to observe 
that none of the Secretaries concerned had used a member- 
ship card system in place of the ledger. The possibility 
of the loss of the membership record of a brother is thus 
lessened. The excellence of the records examined emphasized 
the wisdom of selecting an experienced and well skilled 
brother to serve as secretary of the new Lodge. 

We have examined the petitions, books and records of 
the three Lodges presently under Dispensation and recom- 
mend that Wan-ants be issued to the following Lodges: 

(a) ASHLAR LODGE, U.D., Tillsonburg, instituted Sept- 
ember 17, 1959, to be numbered 701 and placed in Wilson 
District. 

(b) LODGE OF FELLOWSHIP, U.D., Richmond Hill, in- 
stituted March 8, 1960, to be numbered 702, and placed 
in Toronto District 5. 

(c) THE LODGE OF THE PILLARS, U.D., Weston, Ontario, 
instituted March 29, 1960, to be numbered 703 and 
placed in Toronto District 2. 

It has been the practice of your Committee each year 
to remind all new Lodge Secretaries of the advantage of 
starting always at the top of the page to record the Minutes 
of each Meeting and likewise of the desirability of making 
marginal notes indicating the subject matter of each para- 
graph. This practice will prove exceedingly useful in 
ascertaining information regarding items recorded in the 
Minutes. 

We likewise recommend that new Lodges procure suit- 
able record books and have them properly set up, thus 
establishing the foundation for properly recording the pro- 
ceedings and records of the Lodge. Your Committee has, 
in previous reports, suggested that the new Lodge seek the 
advice and direction of the Grand Secretary's office in this 
very important undertaking. 

We again urge that this practice be followed and indeed 
we recommend that a circular be prepared by the Grand 
Secretary's office setting out in detail the proper books to 
procure and also those procedures considered important in 
establishing a system whereby the proceedings of the new 
Lodge will be properly recorded. 



188 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 



Your Committee also recommends: 

1. That copies of Lodge summonses should be retained and 
periodically bound. This is a small effort and enables 
interesting data in connection with the Lodge to be 
available in an accessible form. 

2. That new Lodcres appoint an interested brother to record 
the history of the Lodge each year. We suggest that a 
plan be developed which will assure that such historical 
notes will be comnleted each year and placed with the 
records of the Lodge. 

3. That consideration be given by every new Lodge to the 
provision of a fireproof receptacle which will accommodate 
the Warrant, the minute book, the by-laws, the member- 
shin ledger and the history of the Lodge. The Warrant 
and all records of a Lodge become increasingly valuable 
as the years pass. It must be realized that the originals, 
if lost or destroyed, can never be replaced. 

Finally, your Committee wish to extend felicitations to 
these new Lodges and we express the hope that an especial 
measure of success will attend the efforts of their officers 
and members. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted, 

JAMES N. ALLAN. 

Chairman.

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON

This report was presented by M.W. Bro. H. L. 
Martyn, Chairman, and on motion of the Deputy 
Grand Master, seconded by M.W. Bro. Martyn it was 
received and adopted. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 189 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge, A.F. &. A.M., of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

In presenting the report of this Committee to Grand 
Lodge, we should like to record our very great sorrow and 
deep sense of loss in the passing of our Chairman. M.W. Bro. 
F. A. Copus, and other three M.W. Brethren who received 
their call during the last Masonic year. Members of our 
Grand Lodge will long remember the contributions they 
have made to the work and deliberations of this Committee. 
The main portion of this report was prepai'ed and presented 
to the Committee by our late Chairman just ten days before 
his final call was answered. All that follows with the ex- 
ception of the last paragraph was recorded by him. 

In the report presented by this committee to Grand 
Lodge last year extended explanations were given as to the 
Committee's functions. These references were made because 
it was our opinion that certain difficulties were looming up 
in world Freemasonry and that it was desirable that our 
position in relation thereto should be stated quite definitely. 
We are sorry to report that the trouble then forecasted has 
now made its appearance, and will necessitate the utmost in 
the way of charitable study, if a proper solution is to be 
attained. 

In our opinion the recent action of the Grand Lodges of 
England, Ireland and Scotland is of outstanding importance 
for they have definitely declared that they will no longer 
recognize any Grand Lodges that are presently, or in the 
future, in amity with Grand Lodges not recognized by the 
British Grand Lodges. It is to be borne in mind that England, 
Ireland and Scotland absolutely refuse to recognize Grand 
Lodges who refuse to regard the V.O.S.L. and the Father- 
hood of God as fundamental to all true Freemasonry. This is 
the position to which our Grand Lodge also steadfastly 
adheres. 

In announcing this position the British Grand Lodges 
have brought into the foreground a problem that has for long 
threatened the peace of the Masonic world. Unquestionably it 
means the severance of relations with several of the Grand 
Lodges in Europe and perhaps with some of the Grand Lodges 
in America where in certain instances recognition has been 
perhaps more generous than some think, expedient. 

It will be seen that discussion on this action has a direct 
bearing on the lately popular doctrine of "the Universality of 
Freemasonry" as well as the basic rule that each Grand Lodge 
is master in its own house. It may be taken as fundamental 



190 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

that British Grand Lodges have a perfect right to recognize 
whom they will, and also, that other Grand Lodges have an 
equal right to widen their borders if they so desire. Surely 
then the issue calls for cool, careful, and above all, charitable 
study. 

For ourselves the matter presently concerns our Grand 
Lodge specifically in view of what has happened in Germany. 
It will be remembered that some three years ago we extended 
recognition to the newly-formed United Grand Lodge of 
Germany. This was their first successful attempt to gather 
into an organized entity the war-and-persecution scattered 
lodges of Germany. Within the past two years the German 
Brethren have further extended their Grand Lodge organiz- 
ation, the thus extended body being known as the United 
Grand Lodges of Germany. This new body is quite evidently 
a larger and different organization than the one we recognized 
not so long ago. To further complicate the matter, the United 
Grand Lodges of Germany have extended recognition to, and 
enjoy fraternal relations with the Grand Lodge of France, an 
organization which is not recognized by British Freemasonry 
nor by our Grand Lodge. Hence the United Grand Lodges of 
Germany falls under the dictum of the British Grand Lodges. 

The United Grand Lodges of Germany have forwarded a 
request for recognition by our Grand Lodge, creating a most 
embarrassing problem. It is our recommendation that for the 
present at least, their request should be laid over for later 
action, in the hope that time and further study may offer a 
proper solution. 

Just last month we have been officially informed that 
five lodges in Belgium have broken away from the Grand 
Orient of Belgium and formed themselves into a Grand Lodge 
under the name "GRANDE LOGE DE BELGIQUE". The 
reason given for the severance was that the Grand Orient had 
constantly refused to adopt the presence of the Bible and the 
traditional invocation to the G.A.O.T.U. in all Belgian Lodges. 
We have been asked to extend official recognition to this new 
Grand Lodge. Since our information is quite limited about 
them at the present and since we have not received a copy of 
their Constitution as yet, the Committee recommends that 
action on their request be deferred to a later date. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted, 

H. L. MARTYN, 

Chairman.

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON 
CONSTITUTION AND LAWS 

This report was presented by M.W. Bro. T. H. 
Simpson, Chairman, and on motion of the Deputy 
Grand Master, seconded by Al.W. Bro. Simpson, it 
was received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

The Committee on Constitution and Laws begs leave to 
report as follows: 

PARTI 

The following Notices of Motion dated April 28th, 1960, 
were given by M.W. Bro. J. A. Heam: 

(a) That Section 215 of the Constitution be amended by 
deleting the words "twelve dollars" in line four and sub- 
stituting therefor the words "twenty dollars"; and by 
adding at the end of the section the words "except as 
provided in Section 245, subsection (m)." 

(b) That Section 245, subsection (j) of the Constitution be 
amended by deleting the words "three dollars" in line one 
and substituting therefor the words "five dollars". 

(c) That Section 245, subsection (1), of the Constitution, be 
amended by deleting the words "fifty cents" in line two 
and substituting therefor the words "one dollar". 

(d) That Section 245, subsection (m) of the Constitution, be 
deleted and the following subsection substituted therefor: 

"Subsection (m) — For every member of each lodge whose 
fees have not been commuted to Grand Lodge, including 
honorary and charter members, one dollar and twenty 
cents per annum, of which sixty cents shall be used for 
benevolent purposes only, and sixty cents shall be paid 
into the general fund. For every member whose fees 
have been commuted to Grand Lodge, the lodge shall pay 
ten cents per annum into the general fund." 

Your Committee has been advised that M.W. Bro. Hearn 
proposes to change his Notice of Motion by striking out and 
deleting the last sentence of proposed amendment (d) and 



192 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

by substituting the following sentence in the place and stead 
thereof. "For every member whose fees shall be commuted 
to Grand Lodge after July 21st, 1960 the lodge shall pay ten 
cents per annum into the general fund". 

Your Committee has considered these Notices of Motion 
along with this proposed change in the last sentence of 
paragraph (d). There is no constitutional objection to the 
proposed amendments with this change in the last paragraph 
and the last sentence of paragraph (d). 

PART II 

Concurrent Jurisdiction 

(a) Doric Lodge, No. 289, Merrill Lodge, No. 344, Delaware 
Valley Lodge, No. 358, King Solomon Lodge, No. 394, 
Middlesex Lodge, No. 379, Henderson Lodge, No. 388, 
Moffatt Lodge, No. 399 and Myra Lodge, No. 529, all in 
the London District, have petitioned, requesting that they 
be granted concurrent jurisdiction with the various other 
lodges in the City of London and in the London District. 
All lodges in this District are within a radius of ap- 
proximately twenty miles of the City of London. All of 
the other lodges in the District, including all those in 
the City of London, have signified their approval of this 
petition, but one of these lodges has recommended that 
the initiation fees of these eight petitioning lodges should 
be brought in line with the city lodges. Your Committee 
has considered this recommendation. Other lodges in the 
District were given concurrent jurisdiction in 1959, and 
some previously, and no such recommendation was then 
made and no condition attached. Your Committee feels 
that this matter of fees must be left to the discretion of 
each lodge. The granting of the petitioners' application 
will mean that the twenty-four lodges in the London 
District will have concurrent jm-isdiction with each other. 
Your Committee can see no objection to this and, there- 
fore, recommends that the eight lodges named in the 
petition, together with any other lodges hereafter 
located within the jurisdiction of the said eight lodges, 
shall be granted concurrent jurisdiction with the various 
other lodges in the City of London and in the London 
District as requested in this application, the change to 
be effective forthwith. 

(b) Keewatin Lodge, No. 417, Keewatin; Pequonga Lodge, 
Xo. 414, Kenora; and Lake of the Woods Lodge, No. 445, 
Kenora; all in Western District and located around the 
end of Lake of the Woods and in or within four miles of 
Kenora, have petitioned asking that they be granted 
concurrent jurisdiction with each other. Your Committee 
heartily endorses this proposal and recommends that the 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 193 

three petitioning- lodges and any other lodges which may 
hereafter be located within the jurisdiction of such three 
lodges shall hereafter have concurrent jurisdiction with 
each other, the change to be effective forthwith. 

(c) Markham Union Lodge, No. 87, at Markham has petition- 
ed asking that it be granted concurrent jurisdiction with 
all the lodges in the City of Toronto and in the Metro- 
politan Area of Toronto. Ninety-three lodges in the 
Toronto Area have approved of this application and none 
appear to disapprove. Your Committee, therefore, recom- 
mends that Markham Union Lodge, No. 87, at Markham 
be granted concurrent jurisdiction with all the lodges 
in the City of Toronto and the Metropolitan Area of 
Toronto, such change to be effective forthwith. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted, 

T. H. SIMPSON, 

Chairman.

194 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON 
FRATERNAL DEAD 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. D. J. 
Gunn, Chairman, and on motion of the Deputy 
Grand Master, seconded by R.W. Bro. Gunn, it was 
received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

It is the duty of this Committee each year to report to 
the Board of General Purposes and to Grand Lodge the 
names of the Grand Lodge Officers, past and present, who 
have finished their earthly pilgrimage and passed to the 
Grand Lodge Above. Our losses during the last twelve 
months have been almost without precedent in that four 
Past Grand Masters and two Honorary Members of the 
Board of General Purposes have been called to a higher 
service in that edifice not made with hands, eternal in the 
heavens. 



Many other brethren who were pillars of Masonry in 
their own districts and Lodges have also gone from among 
us and we are saddened as we think of the loss the Craft 
has sustained. It is given to but few Masons to become 
Grand Masters but many become officers and members of 
Grand Lodge. The continuing contribution of the past 
Grand Lodge officers in all parts of this Grand Jurisdiction 
is of great importance to our fraternity and we gratefully 
remember many such men. Some were perhaps not widely 
known outside of their own districts, but their example and 
influence will be sorely missed by those who knew them best. 
In recording some of the history and achievements of the 
most distinguished of our honoured dead, we are not unmind- 
ful of the many other brethren who also faithfully served, 
though in a less exalted office. 

The M.W. the Grand Master in his Address to Grand 
Lodge has no doubt paid deserved and fitting tribute to his 
gifted predecessors in office who have entered' into their 
eternal rest and also to the two eminent Masons who were 
Honorary Members of the Board of General Purposes. It 
is not the intention of this Committee to encroach upon his 
prerogative in this regard or to duplicate his account of the 
distinguished careers of our leaders of other years. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 195 

Nevertheless, this Committee has its own obligation to 
place on record its tribute of respect and gratitude for the 
lives and examples of those familiar figures who will be 
with us no more. 

Under the circumstances, it is perhaps fitting that we 
briefly outline some of the outstanding characteristics of 
six of our honoured dead that, in addition to paying our 
tribute to their memories, the living may be inspired to 
greater endeavours to emulate their virtues. 

The Dean of our Past Grand Masters, M.W. Bro. Frank 
Armitage Copus — dignified, courteous, with his fine choice 
of words and great good sense, was always deeply concerned 
with the welfare of the Craft wherever dispersed over the 
face of the earth. In his latter years as Chairman of the 
Committees on Fraternal Relations and Fraternal Correspond- 
ence, he rendered unique and most valuable service to this 
Grand Lodge which future Chairmen of those Committees will 
find it difficult to equal. In July, 1939, he had the memorable 
experience in company with the late M.W. Bro. Dargavel of 
attending an Especial Communication of the United Grand 
Lodge of England, in London, where distinguished Masons 
from Grand Jurisdictions around the earth witnessed the 
instai'Iation by the late M.W. Bro. King George the Sixth of 
his brother, the Duke of Kent, as Grand Master of the United 
Grand Lodge of England. 

M.W. Bro. John Alexander McRae was a truly modest 
gentleman and eminent educationist who served Queen's 
University for forty-three years as a member of the Depart- 
ment of Chemistry and for the last fifteen of those years 
as head of that Department. Absorbed in his laboratory, he 
made outstanding contributions to chemistry research, partic- 
ularly in the field of drugs and dyes. His reputation in this 
field was international and was recognized by his election 
as a Fellow of the Institute of Chemistry of the United 
Kingdom and Ireland and by Manchester University conferring 
on him the Honorary Degree of Doctor of Science in 1952. 

M.W. Bro. Chas. Stanton Hamilton was a successful 
business man; in appearance the very picture of the President 
or Chairman of the Board of a large corporation. Sound in 
judgment, he was the most approachable of men. Installing 
Masters sought his assistance in the ceremony of Installation 
and Investiture and his abilities as a ritualist were much 
admired, not only in our Lodges but in the Ancient and 
Accepted Scottish Rite as well. He was the Dean of the 
active members of Supreme Council and also Grand Treasurer 
General of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite for the 
Dominion of Canada. 

M.W. Bro. Nelson Collins Hart achieved distinction in 
three different fields; those of education and amateur sports 



196 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

as well as that of Masonry. A member of the Department of 
Botany of the University of Western Ontario for many years, 
he had been head of that Department for some time prior 
to his retirement. Keenly interested in amateur athletics, 
he was actively associated with Canada's participation in the 
Olympic Games, serving as Honorary Secretary of the Can- 
adian Olympic Association and later as General Manager of 
the Canadian Olympic team. In recent years, Grand Lodge 
received .the benefit of his fine mind and rich experience as 
Chairman of the Committee on Fraternal Correspondence. 

R.W. Bro. Smith Shaw was a dynamic Scotsman who 
oame to Canada in 1909, settling in Stratford, where he first 
saw the light of Masonry in Tecumseh Lodge, No. 144, be- 
coming its W.M. in 1915. He later moved to Toronto and 
was the leading spirit in the organization of Kilwinning 
Lodge, No. 565, and was its first Master in 1920. A Past D.D. 
G.M. of Toronto District "A", he was a member of the Board 
of General Purposes for a number of years' and later was 
made an Honorary Member. Possessed of a great natural 
ability and energy, he was a strong figure in Masonic circles' 
for more than two decades. The Chairman of this Committee, 
a personal friend, visited him shortly before his death and, 
although his body was sadly wasted, his mind was clear and 
the welfare of 'the Craft was still most dear to his heart. 

R.W. Bro. John Ness was also born in Scotland where he 
first saw the light of Masonry in St. Stephens Lodge, No. 145. 
Employed with the Geological Survey of his native land for 
some years, he came to Canada in 1919 and joined the staff 
of a large oil company with which organisation he remained 
until his retirement. His services to that industry were 
highly valued, resulting in his being awarded the Leonard 
Gold Medal, and he was also made a life member of the 
Canadian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy. He was richly 
endowed with the gifts of eloquence and humour and was 
a prolific writer on Masonic topics. 

Despite the great losses we have sustained in the deaths 
of these and other splendid M'asons, time moves remorse- 
lessly on, and the future, as always, challenges the living 
to fill the gaps. This, too, in an age that abounds in problems 
of grave import and when the demands on the time and 
abilities of men are many and varied. Will our belief in the 
Craft, its philosophy and way of life prove as great as that 
■of those we mown? We may well gather inspiration and 
strength as we think of the faith and devotion of our honour- 
ed dead, which was so eloquently expressed by one of them: 

"For, having carried us to the intellectual mountain-tops 
and set our feet on the highest metaphysical pinnacle, 
Masonry does not adjure us to look down into the pit of 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 197 

mental perplexity from which philosophy has rescued us; it 
does not invite us to look around at the self-attained heights 
of moral rectitude; it implores us, with almost desperate 
urgency, to lift our eyes still higher that, up and beyond, we 
may catch a glimpse of that Bright Morning Star which 
shall arise to bring us peace and salvation. 

"But, having' anticipated our need, Masonry has placed 
in our hands the Volume of the Sacred Law and, resting on 
that Holy Book, is the ladder with many staves or rounds, 
the first of which is Faith; that faith in which our fathers 
and their fathers lived and died; that deep-rooted faith which 
springs from unshakable belief; that faith which will shine 
through the gloom and illumine our pathway into the un- 
known." 

Such also was, we believe, the faith of all our honoured 
dead. May we, too, be able to say with the poet: 

"I know not what the future hath 
Of marvel or surprise 
Assured alone that life and death 
His mercy underlies." 

With gratitude to the Great Architect of the Universe 
for their lives and example, we remember these departed

The thanks of this Committee is extended to the Grand 
Secretary, the District Deputy Grand Masters, and all others 
who have assisted in supplying the necessary information. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted.

Chairman. 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON 
THE CONDITION OF MASONRY 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. M. C. 
Cain, Chairman, and on motion of the Deputy Grand 
Master, seconded by R.W. Bro. Cain, it was received 
and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

In these times when all democratic institutions, including 
Masonry, are beinsr undermined by sinister ideologies _ it is 
advisable for us to reflect on the words of the late Sir William 
Osier who said, "Forget the errors of the Past, pull down 
the curtains on the uncertainties of the Future and lay a firm 
hold on the problems of the Present." What is the condition 
of Masonry in this Grand Jurisdiction ? 

This summary is based in part on the available reports 
of the District Deputy Grand Masters, who by their untiring 
efforts and devotion to duty have materially influenced the 
condition of Masonry in their respective districts. The 
District Deputies, without exception, expressed their sincere 
thanks for the privilege of representing the Most Worshipful 
the Grand Master. They commented on the gracious and 
traditional receptions which they received thereby affirming 
the fraternal esteem and respect with which our Grand 
Master is held in all parts of this Grand Jurisdiction. 

In every report comments were mads on the efficient 
service rendered by the District Secretaries, who relieved the 
District Deputy Grand Masters of many routine duties. 
Several references were made regarding the diligence of 
Lodge Secretaries. The finances of the Lodges, with a few 
exceptions, appear to be on a sound basis. One District 
Deputy Grand Master suggested that lodge finances might be 
improved if the Initiation fee and Lodge dues were com- 
mensurate with the present cost of living. Of the twenty- 



208 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

nine available reports, twenty-eight classed the work from 
good to excellent. The suggestion has been made that this 
is due in part to the Lodges of Instruction which have been 
held in many districts, and augur well for the future of the 
Craft. Some reports indicate that interest is being created 
in Lodges by having members take appropriate parts in the 
ritualistic work. Several comments were made on the excel- 
lent calibre of candidates seeking admission to the Order 
which speakes well for the future of Masonry in this Grand 
Jurisdiction. Seventeen of the available District reports 
indicate that Blood Donor Committees were appointed and in 
some cases the results' have been excellent. In nine reports 
the District Deputy Grand Masters expressed their joy in 
presenting to senior members of the Craft the various Grand 
Lodge medals in recognition of years of service and faithful- 
ness to their Lodges, their Districts' and to Masonry in general. 
This Committee extends to these brethren its sincere con- 
gratulations. The reports indicate that the social side of 
Masonry was not neglected and many pleasant evenings were 
enjoyed by the brethren, their wives and friends. From 
these comments we feel justified in stating that prosperity 
and harmony prevail throughout our Grand Jurisdiction. 

Only two District reports commented on lodge attendance. 
It is generally accepted that attendance at the Regular and 
Emergent meetings is a problem common to most Lodges in 
this Grand Jurisdiction. In an effort to arrive at a fairly 
accurate figure your Committee made a spot survey in 7 
Districts comprising 86 Lodges in an effort to determine the 
average percentage attendance of resident members only, 
at the Regular and Emergent meetings, in small, medium and 
large Lodges, in both urban and rural districts. This survey 
revealed the startling fact that the average attendance was 
about twenty percent. This figure should impress on every 
Worshipful Master, officer and member that he has a re- 
sponsibility to do every thing in his power to increase the 
attendance in his own Lodge. 

The size of our Lodges' is a factor which influences the 
condition of Masonry. The Grand Secretary in his Annual 
Report of 1959 showed the number of Warranted Lodges to 
be 608. A breakdown of this re-port reveals that there were 
94 Lodges with a membership under 100 members; 228 Lodges 
between 100 and 200; 130 Lodges between 200 and 300; 88 
Lodges between 300 and 400; 48 Lodges between 400 and 500; 
12 Lodges between 500 and 600; 7 Lodges between 600 and 
700; and one Lodge over 700 members. The reports on per- 
centage attendance indicate that, generally speaking, the 
larger the Lodge the lower the percentage attendance. This 
fact reminds us again of the desirability of more and smaller 
Lodges where accomodation is obtainable. 

An institution, such as Masonry, must be built on the 
solid foundation' of Eternal Truth if it is to survive and 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 209 

prosper in this rapidly changing world. The reports indicate 
a Chaplain was appointed in every District, and rendered 
excellent service by assisting the District Deputy Grand 
Masters in their work; officiating at the District Divine 
Services bringing to the brethren a message on the Eternal 
verities of life. It is interesting to note that, except in two 
Districts, the Chaplain was a member of the clergy. It is 
noted that our Grand Chaplain travelled far and wide in 
this Grand Jurisdiction in the discharge of his official duties, 
as well as bringing to our attention that if Masonry is to 
maintain a strong position in the mind of man it must be 
"free in its faith; fraternal in its fellowship and fruitful in 
its work". In all District reports, except two, there was at 
least one District Divine Service, while manv Lodges also 
had their own Church Services. The attendance at these 
services attested the place the Church occupies in our 
Fraternity. 

Your Committee has noted an increase in the number of 
visits between Lodges; no doubt, it has been made possible 
by the ease of transportation. These visits are to be highly 
commended since they tend toward the standardization and 
improvement of the work. They also afford the opportunity 
of cementing and enlarging our fellowship. Reports indicate 
that some Lodges near the Provincial borders have an inter- 
change of visits with Lodges in the adjoining province. It 
is noted that several Lodges make visits across the Inter- 
national border strengthening the bonds of International 
Brotherhood which is the Corner Stone of our Craft. 

Elbert Hubbard said, "Knowledge is a matter of desire." 
Our Grand Librarian reports more brethren are using our 
library. This is encouraging as it indicates an increased 
interest in the History, Symbolism and Philosophy of the 
Craft thereby instilling in the mind of the brethren a more 
extensive understanding and appreciation of our Masonic 
heritage. It is noted that the Grand Lodge Bulletin is wel- 
comed by the brethren since it furnishes messages of inspir- 
ation as well as interesting news from our sister Lodges. 

It is gratifying to note that several new Temples have 
been erected during the past Masonic year while others aie 
in the planning stage, which is evidence of sustained Masonic 
activity. The reports also indicate that some of the older 
Temples are being renovated providing greater accommo- 
dation and comfort thus stimulating interest among the 
brethren of the Lodges. These encouraging signs of progress 
are sure evidence of the healthy condition of the Craft. 

The work of the Past Masters' Associations was favour- 
ably commented on in thirteen of the District Reports. In 
these Associations problems common to the district are dealt 



210 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

with and appropriate programmes are presented. These 
groups provide an opportunity for Past Masters to keep in 
touch with Masonic affairs after they have relinquished the 
responsibilities of office and at the same time offer the 
privilege of discussing Masonic problems in an informal 
atmosphere. Many districts have Wardens' Associations 
which are thriving 1 . These Associations provide excellent 
preparation for the future occupant of the Master's Chair; 
life long friendships are farmed, and the opportunity is given 
for discussion of matters of common interest. Your Com- 
mittee commends these organizations for the service they are 
rendering to the welfare of the Craft. 

"Thy are not dead who live in the hearts of their friends 
and brethren." At this Communication of Grand Lodge we 
are deeply conscious of a great loss by the death of four of 
our Past Grand Masters — M.W. Bro. F. A. Copus, M.W. Bro. 
J. A. McRae, M.W. Bro. C. S. Hamilton and M.W. Bro. 
N. C. Hart. During their Masonic life and particularly when 
serving as Grand Master, these brethren gave of their time 
and energies, never counting the cost. The condition of 
Masonry in our Grand Jurisdiction has been enhanced by 
their devoted and unselfish service, and their influence will 
be felt in the years which lie ahead. We pay our homage to 
our departed and distinguished brethren in the words of the 
poet who said: 

"So when great men die 
For years beyond our ken 
The lights they leave behind them, lie 
Upon the paths of men." 

Emerson has said, "Every great institution is the length- 
ened shadow of a single man." We are fortunate to have as 
the head of our Order one so devoted to the interest of our 
fraternity. His matchless energy, Masonic fervour, and 
Christian ideals stamp him as the leader of our Craft. 
Our hope is that the years which lie ahead will bless him 
with health that he may continue to give of his time and 
wise counsel. 

When we review the condition of Masonry in this Grand 
Jurisdiction in the past Masonic year we realize we have 
much to be thankful for. There does not appear to be cause 
for either too much concern or undue elation. We have 
problems to -solve which are common to most Grand Jurisdic- 
tions in the Masonic world, but if each of us will do his part 
then satisfactory solutions will be forthcoming. We can then 
assume a measure of humble pride in our preferment, and 
face the world as moral responsible men with Charity in our 
hearts and God in our minds. With these thoughts in mind, 
let us dedicate ourselves with the words of Sir Owen Seaman 
who said: 



TORONTO, ONTARIO. 1960 



"To steel our souls against the lust of ease; 
To find our welfare in the general good; 
To hold together, merging- all degrees 
In one wide brotherhood. 

To teach that he who saves himself is lost; 
To bear in silence though our hearts may bleed; 
To spend ourselves and never count the cost, 
To others greater need." 



Respectfully and fraternally submitted, 



M. C. CAIN, 

Chairman

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON 
MASONIC EDUCATION 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. B. B. 
Foster, Chairman, and on motion of the Deputy 
Grand Master, seconded by R.W. Bro. Foster it 
was received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

Your Committee on Masonic Education is pleased to 
report its activities in this Grand Juridicton for the year 
1959-60. 

With great regret we record the passing, during the year, 
of two valued members of the Committee, M.W. Bro. J. A. 
McRae and M.W. Bro. N. C. Hart, both Past Grand Masters. 
M.W. Bro. McRae was a member of the Committee from 
1947 to 1960. M.W. Bro. Hart was a member from 1938 until 
his passing in 1959. He was Chairman from 1941 to 1949 
when he became Deputy Grand Master. Their contribution 
to the expansion and effectiveness of the work of the Com- 
mittee cannot be overestimated. We shall miss their wise 
counsel sorely. 

At the beginning of the year M.W. Bro. H. L. Martyn, 
Custodian of the Work and a member of this Committee, 
held instructional meetings with the District Deputy Grand 
Masters in small groups in various centres of the Jurisdic- 
tion. Your Chairman was privileged to attend the meeting 
held in North Bay. During the course of these meetings, 
the work of the Committee on Masonic Education was das- 
cussed in detail. Since the meetings were held in different 
centres, it was possible to make the discussions apply to 
particular areas and to the problems 1 concerned with Masonic 
Education in those areas. Doing so enabled the District 
Deputy Grand Masters to begin their year in this area of 
our work with greater confidence. 



TORONTO. ONTARIO, 1960 213 

During the year five general communication have been 
forwarded from the Chairman's office to the members of the 
Committee, to the District Deputy Grand Masters, to the 
Supervisors of Masonic Education, to the several Lodges, 
through the courtesy of the District Deputy Grand Masters, 
and to others who requested them. Four of these com- 
munications were accompanied by bulletins related to the 
symbolism and the philosophy of the Craft. The fifth was 
the usual summary form for the District report on the work 
of the year. A large percentage of the Lodges reporting 
seem to have appreciated these bulletins, since they urge 
their continuance. 

Three issues of the "Syllabus of Instruction" have been 
distributed to the individual Lodges through the Grand 
Secretary's office. The Committee wishes to thank R.W. Bro. 
J. J. Talman, Grand Senior Warden, for the preparation of 
the third issue. It would appear from the District reports 
that this publication is being used by a fair number of the 
Lodges to encourage the formation of study groups, and 
your Committee recommends that this procedure be continued. 
We have, however, come to the disturbing conclusion, from 
the District reports, that some Lodges still have never heard 
of the Syllabus! 

District Supervisors are the co-orddnators and directors 
of the Masonic Education programme carried on in each 
District. The general success of this work can be attributed 
to these untiring Brethren. Only one District was without 
a Supervisor this past year. This is a most satisfactory 
condition. Your Committee hopes that each District will 
continue to appoint Supervisors. 

From the Thirty-five District Reports, we are pleased to 
record an increase in the purchase of the Manual for Masonic 
Students and Instructors. We hasten to observe, however, 
that this increase represents less than ten per cent of the 
average number of initiates for any one year. We should find 
some way of informing newly-made Masons that this volume 
is available to them, by purchase, through the Lodge Secre- 
tary. By doing so we micrht interest more of our members 
in the satisfying work of Masonic Education. 

We find this year that the number of lodge meetings at 
which some type of Masonic Education was included remained 
about equal to that of last year, and the same parallel is 
apparent in the number of District Meetings. The most 
frequent suggestions for the promotion of Masonic Education 
were short talks and panel discussions. One District pro- 
posed making the Immediate Past Master Chairman of the 
Masonic Education Committee in his Lodge to improve the 
direction of the lodge programme. 



214 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Each candidate must profess himself to be actuated by 
a desire for knowledge. Each Lodge Committee should make 
new members acquainted with sources of information so that 
those members may widen their search for that knowledge. 
Abraham Lincoln said, "You cannot help men permanently by 
doing for them what they could and should do for themselves." 
In the light of this observation, let us organize more study 
groups where progressive enlightenment may be promoted. 
Initiation alone can never make a true Mason; it gives the 
key, but the possession of the key does not constitute owner- 
ship of the treasure; it sows the seed, but unless the soil is 
good and is carefully cultivated, fruit will not be produced; 
it lays the foundation, but without labour by the individual 
himself, the superstructure cannot be raised. 

The Committee would like to express its appreciation to 
the District Deputy Grand Masters, the Supervisors, and all 
the brethren who have assisted in the Masonic Education 
programme this year. We hope that they have found thedr 
experience most satisfying and will continue to serve in 
some capacity. We also wish to thank the Grand Secretary 
for mailing out the Syllabus of Instruction to the Lodges. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted, 

BRUCE B. FOSTER, 

Chairman. 



REPORT OF BLOOD DONORS' COMMITTEE 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. F. D. 
Shannon, Chairman, and on motion of the Deputy 
Grand Master, seconded by R.W. Bro. Shannon, it 
was received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M., of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

Your Blood Donors' Committee begs to present its Third 
Annual Report to the One Hundred and Fifth Annual Com- 
munication of Grand Lodge. 

Increasing progress has been the experience of the Com- 
mittee this year. More Lodges are being represented at the 
Red Cross Blood Donor Clinics, and more and more Masons 
are helping by supplying much needed blood for use in hospi- 
tals scattered over the length and breadth of this Jurisdiction. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 215 

More Masons are awakening to the need to give, firstly so that 
a supply of blood will be more readily available, and secondly 
that they may have a greater appreciation and love for Free- 
masonry from having participated in this its greatest Charity. 

This year the District Deputy Grand Masters were asked 
to appoint District Chairmen of this Committee. Of these, 
three D.D.G.M's. completely ignored our requests, and two 
others wrote, promising help but gave none. Three of the 
District Deputies assumed the duties of Blood Donor Chairman 
themselves. One failed to report, but the other two, R.W. 
Bro. Fife of Grey District, and R.W. Bro. Russell of Sarnia 
District, in addition to the regular arduous duties of their 
office, made an excellent contribution to this Committee. 

Reports were received from 20 districts, comprising 280 
Lodges, with a membership of approximately 63,000 Masons. 
Of these 4,300 are listed as donors, or one out of every 15 
Masons. Last year there were 3,000 donors among 18,000 
Masons in 81 Lodges. Although the number of donors is 
higher, the ratio is lower; however the response of a larger 
number of Lodges is encouraging. 

May I quote from the data reported by the District 
Chairmen: 

Terrace Bay Lodge, in Algoma District has 58 local mem- 
bers. 32 of these attended the Red Cross Clime. 

The larges number of donors of any district "482" was 
supplied by Niagara "A". This constitutes one donor in every 
7 members. Muskoka and Western each had one in every 8 
members; St. Lawrence had one in 9; and Temiskaming had 
1 donor in each 11 members. 

Mr. Newham of the Red Cross Sen-ice wrote that he was 
having difficulty organizing the Kingston area. I told him 
that Bro. Leonard Ede was the Chairman for Frontenac 
District, and later reports indicate that they were able to be 
of assistance to each other. 

On January 27, a Masonic Red Cross Clinic was held in 
Barrie, which was a big success, and W. Bro. J. M. Heslip 
of Georgian District, is to be commended for his efforts. 

W. Bro. H. A. Fisher of Muskoka District writes as fol- 
lows: — "While these fibres are not in the slightest degree 
impressive, and are rather disappointing, yet in the case of 
some of the Lodges it represents a beginning. And with this 
beginning which represents an awakening to the needs for 
blood we may hope that the Masons of this District will be- 
come more and more aware of the call of this great Charity 
and will respond in greater numbers to the high demands of 
this, their dedication." 



216 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Wor. Bro. C. R. Buss of Niagara "A" had this comment: — 
"This is not a good report for such a large jurisdiction, but, 
in spite of continued publicity and prodding, Masons still do 
not seem to realize the importance of this work. I hope 
future years will show marked improvement". 

Mr G R. Cameron, Chairman of the Belleville Branch of 
the Red Cross Blood Donor Service, was having difficulty 
filling his quota. I put him in touch with W. Bro. Jas Pow, 
of Prince Edward District, and I understand a Masonic Clinic 
was to be held. I do not have a final report in this event. 

On May 26, a Masonic Blood Clinic was held in Brockville, 
and plans' are beiner made to hold further clinics at regular 
intervals. Salem Lodge supplied 107 donors out of 241 
resident members, and Harmony Lodge supplied 22 out of 
32 members. 

The District Deputy Grand Masters have been most 
helpful by bringing the idea of giving blood to the attention 
of the brethren during their addresses to the Lodges. The 
District Chairmen and the Lodge Chairmen have been of 
invaluable aid in assembling the data used in this report, 
and I am deeply grateful to all who have given assistance to 
this Committee. Let us hope that next year's committee may 
meeet with greater success. Blood is needed and is being 
used in ever increasing quantities in this age of Modern 
Medicine. Let us never forget that: — "The pint you give 
to-day may save the life of one of your loved ones to-morrow." 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted, 

FRANK SHANNON, 

Chairman. 



REPORT OF THE LIBRARY COMMITTEE 

This report was presented by V.W. Bro. B. S. 
Edmondson, Chairman, and on motion of the Deputy 
Grand Master, seconded by V.W. Bro. Edmondson, 
it was received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful 1 Sir, and Brethren: 

Over the years, well-known thinkers and scholars have 
driven us their ideas as to the mental riches of books, libraries, 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 217 

self -education and learning. Such expressions may supply us 
witihi a guage to measure our own reading and our use of the 
opportunities which are offered to us in these present busy 
days. Your Committee believes that our library has, in this 
past year, continued to offer to the brethren the means and 
the opportunity for advancement in Masonic knowledge. 
Samuel Taylor Coleridge, one of the finest English minds 
of a hundred and fifty years ago, gives us a good lead 
wthen he relates, 

"It is saying less than the truth that an excellent book 
is like a well-chosen and well-tended fruit tree. Its fruits 
are not of one year only. With the due and natural intervals, 
we may return to it year after year, and it will supply the 
same nourishment and the same gratification, if only we 
ourselves return to it with the same healthful appetite." 

Perhaps this- simile may also apply to the hearing and 
thought-provoking phrases of our oft-repeated ritual. 

Now, your Committee would like to report on its several 
activities over the past year. There has been a marked 
interest in and demand for, all of our best books. Our 
Librarian has had many calls from members of the Education 
Committees in Lodges, for books which would give material 
for talks, not only on general, but also on specific subjects. 
On many occasions' it has not been possible to supply the most 
suitable book for the simple reason that it was already out 
on loan to another borrower. It also might be said that not 
a few enquiries have been made dealing with 'the methods and 
interpretation of the ritual. Here it must be said that, as a 
rule, English writers' are loath to put their ideas on these 
subjects into writing. After all, Masonic books get into 
circulation among the general public, and a too-free descrip- 
tion of the methods and meaning of our ceremonies violates 
one of our fundamental principles — namely, secrecy. 

While the Committee has been most anxious to meet the 
requests of our borrowers, it regrets that its abilities to 
satisfy them have been limited owing to unusual demands. 
These demands, we feel soire, are due in the first place 
to the particular emphasis that has been placed on Masonic 
Education by our Immediate Past Grand Master and bis 
enthusiastic corps of District Deputy Grand Masters. In 
their travels in and among the Lodges, this effort has been 
stressed, tflie need for instructive talks' has been pointed out, 
and not only well-versed Past Masters, but young first-year 
members have been placed on these Lodge Committees. 
Perhaps the Committee should purchase more copies, than in 
the past, of particularly good books. 

And speaking of more books, it can truthfully be said 
that only a very, very few new Craft books appear each year. 



218 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

The real reason is that there are very, very few competent 
writers for Masonic publications. It may be argued that if 
some particular incentive were offered, that this might 
encourage embryo writers. Would our Grand Lodge like to 
encourage or further such interest by offering some suitable 
recognition to those of our own membership who might take 
this suggestion seriously? 

As in previous years, a number of the brethren have 
made donations of books to add to our collection. Some of 
these are as follow®.

22 volumes 1 of valuable Masonic books. 

To all of the above we are particularly grateful. 

And now as to Library space. For the past ten years 
our work in the Library has been hampered by inadequate 
working facilities. To remedy this situation, the Librarian 
has submitted a plan both to the Masonic Temple Corporation, 
and to the Library Committee. An adjoining room can be 
acquired to provide the needed space and the Corporation 
has agreed to bear about a half of the necessary cost. Your 
Committee recommends that this scheme be proceeded' with. 
It is estimated that our share of the renovation of the sug- 
gested room, together with adequate shelving, etc., etc., will 
entail an expenditure of something less than Four Hundred

Dollars. It is our unanimous opinion that this proposal is 
■well justified and it will more than repay the outlay in 
aiding- to increase and improve the continuing- and increasing 
work of the Library. 

We are always glad to entertain in our Library, Masonic 
visitors from other countries. Every year, we have them 
from jurisdictions in the country to our South, and from 
those of far-off Australia. We feel that, in doing so, we 
are aiding the cause of Freemasonry universal. It should 
also be mentioned that the Library was used in May of this 
year for the annual meeting of the Canadian Society of 
Masonic Research. Members were there from Halifax to 
Winnipeg. 

Such is our Report, Most Worshipful Sir. We have 
been pleased to act as your representatives on this import- 
ant committee; we feel that we have been able to do some- 
thing of a worthwhile job for our Grand Lodge. Further, 
we would recommend the continuance of a Library Com- 
mittee as we feel sure that it has a vital function for our 
Craft here in Ontario. In closing may we quote a few words 
which Ralph Waldo Emerson, "the sage of Concord", had to 
say about a Library: 

"Consider what you have in the smallest chosen library: 
a company of the wisest and wittiest men have set in best 
order the results of their learning and wisdom. These men 
were usually hid and inaccessible, solitary, impatient of 
interruption, forced by etiquette; but the thoughts that they 
did not uncover to their bosom friends are here written out 
in ifcransparent words to us, strangers of another age." 

All of which is gratefully submitted by your Committee, 
of which the undersigned has had the privilege of being 
Chairman. 

BYRON S. EDMONDSON, 

Chairman.

220 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

To have served Masonry as Grand Chaplain in this Grand 
Jurisdiction has been a wonderful privilege. I am most 
grateful to have had the opportunity. It has been an ex- 
perience I shall always cherish and remember with pleasure. 
The cordial and courteous reception and the many acts of 
kindness accorded me at all times are sincerely and grate- 
fully acknowledged. I trust that I have to some degree 
upheld the standards and traditions of Grand Lodge. 

I was fortunate to have had the support of V. Wor. Bro. 
Rev. R. Millar and V. Wor. Bro. Rev. G. A. Shields, the As- 
sistant Grand Chaplains, who very kindly acted when it was 
not possible for me to attend the Especial Communications 
of Grand Lodge. I thank them for their assistance. 

I wish to express my appreciation to the District Deputy 
Grand Masters who, where it was possible, appointed an 
ordained Clergyman as District Chaplain. This is in keeping 
with the wishes of Grand Lodge. Where a layman received 
the appointment I am confident that conscientious and devot- 
ed service was given. On behalf of Grand Lodge I thank 
them for their inspiration and leadership. 

Among the many pleasant experiences I was able to enjoy 
during the course of the year were included, a service of 
Institution, several ceremonies of Dedication of New Temples 
and Lodge rooms, and Constituting and Consecrating of New 
Lodges. I also assisted with a number of District Divine 
Services, preached at a Centennial Celebration and was 
present at numerous Installations. I regret that there were 
times when I was unable to accept certain invitations due 
to the call of Parish duty but I know the Brethren will 
understand. 

One cannot fail to be impressed with the physical growth 
of the Craft as seen in the formation of new Lodges and the 
erection of new Temples. These are outward and visible 
signs of the abiding faith of our members in the Great 
Architect of the Universe, who is the same yesterday, today 
and forever. As Masons we are building, both physically and 
spiritually, not only for today but for the future 'as well. 

To the Grand Secretary and his staff I express my deep 
sense of gratitude. Their help meant a great deal to me in 
the performance of my duties. Their kindness is greatly 
appreciated. 

To my successor I offer my congratulations and best 
wishes. May his term of office be one of continual joy and 
happiness. If I can be of assistance to him at any time I 
hope he will feel free to call on me. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted, 

M. G. B. WILLIAMS, 

Grand Chaplain.

REPORT OF SPECIAL COMMITTEE ON 
NEW GRAND LODGE OFFICES 

This report was presented by M.W. Bro. J. A. 
Heam, and on his motion, seconded by the Deputy 
Grand Master, it was received and adopted. 



222 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge A.F. & A.M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

It had been confidently expected that my report this 
year on the New Memorial Building at Hamilton would be the 
final one, and that I would be able to tell you that the build- 
ing was completed and occupied by Grand Lodge. 

Due to the prolonged strike in the building trades late 
last Fall, and continuing into February of this year, no 
progress was made during that time. It would appear now, 
however, that the new quarters for Grand Lodge will be 
ready for occupancy in October. 

The Memorial Building is of a two storey type with a 
large basement containing vault space so badly needed by 
Grand Lodge. The upper floor will be for rent, approximately 
4,000 square feet, until all or part of it may be needed by 



You will, I am sure, feel justifiably proud of our new 
Headquarters. The outward appearance, the available 
facilities inside and design while far from being ornate or 
lavish, has a great dignity about the whole structure. You 
should plan to see it soon for yourself. 

Our Building Committee must take full credit for this 
undertaking; the personnel being R. C. Berkinshaw, Q.C., 
Chairman, Walter H. Gibson, and E. G. Dixon, Q.C. and our 
architect, Geo. T. Evans, who has literally lived with the 
building since its inception. 

On Julv 21st, the members of Masonic Holdings returned 
the same Board of Directors for 1960-1961, namely J. N. 
Allan, R. C. Berkinshaw, Q.C, E. G. Dixon, Q. C, W. J. 
Dunlop, Geo. T. Evans, W. H. Gibson, Joseph A. Hearn, H. 
L. Martyn, T. H. Simpson, Q.C. To these are added by 
virtue of their Offices: The Grand Master and the Deputy 
Grand Master. 

At a subsequent meeting of the Directors, the following 
Officers were elected: 

President — Joseph A. Hearn 
Vice-President — R. C. Berkinshaw, Q.C. 
Vice-President — H. L. Martyn 
Secretary-Treasurer — E. G. Dixon, Q.C.

ing most heartily. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 225 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON 
GRIEVANCES AND APPEALS 

i 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. J. R. 

Rumball, Chairman, and on motion of the Deputy 

Grand Master, seconded by R.W. Bro. Rumball, it 

was received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M., of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

The Committee on Grievances and Appeals submits its 
report in the following parts. 

1. MANITOBA LODGE, No. 236, versus BRO. GORDON 
AUSTIN WIGGINS. 

Reference to the Proceedings of this Grand Lodge for 
the year 1959 (page 201) shows that Bro. Gordon Austin 
Wiggins of Manitoba Lodge, No. 236 was convicted, after 
a plea of guilty, of the following charges under the Criminal 
Code of Canada: Armed Robbery, six charges of possession 
of stolen goods, one charge of breaking, entering and theft, 
and four charges of having unregistered firearms. 

The sentence, imposed by the Magistrate of the Town 
of Bradford, was not considered adequate by the Attorney 
General and an appeal was taken to the Court of Appeal 
for Ontario which resulted in increased sentences, one of 
which was imprisonment for seven years on the armed 
robbery charge. There were other consecutive and con- 
current punishments as well. 

Following the conviction and the sentences as above 
mentioned a charge of unmasonic conduct, under Rule 1 (g), 
(h) and (p), was laid in and accepted by the Lodge and Bro. 
Gordon Austin Wiggins was forthwith suspended by the 
Lodge. The report of this Committee, approved by Grand 
Lodge a year ago, after commenting on the procedure 
adopted by the Lodge but emphasizing the obvious guilt of 
the accused, confirmed the finding of guilt and recommended 
that Bro. Gordon Austin Wiggins be notified to appear at 
this Annual Communication of Grand Lodge to show cause 
why he should not be expelled. He has been so notified but 
has not appeared, nor has he made any representations. 
Your Committee, therefore, recommends that Bro. Gordon 
Austin Wiggins be expelled. 



226 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

2. SIMCOE LODGE, No. 644 versus BRO. IVAN B. 
GROSE. 

Again to refresh our memory (and for the benefit of 
those who were not present at the meeting of this Committee 
last year) reference may be made to the Proceedings of this 
Grand Lodge for the year 1959 (page 202). It was there 
stated that Bro. Ivan B. Grose, a member of Simcoe Lodge, 
No. 644, had pleaded guilty to a charge of armed robbery 
and had been sentenced in the Magistrate's Court of the 
City of Hamilton to imprisonment in the Ontario Reform- 
atory for 15 months definite and 15 months indefinite. 

Again, as in the preceding case the Attorney General 
for Ontario entered an appeal against the sentence which 
was increased by the Court of Appeal of Ontario to three 
years imprisonment in the Kingston Penitentiary. Sub- 
sequently a charge of unmasonic conduct under Rule 1 (p) 
was laid and accepted by the Lodge. 

The guilt of Bro. Ivan B. Grose having been established, 
both by his admission of guilt and by conviction at the trial, 
which was confirmed by the decision on appeal, this Com- 
mittee, after commenting on the obvious guilt of the ac- 
cused, recommended that Bro. Grose be notified to appear 
at this Annual Communication of Grand Lodge to show cause 
why he should not be expelled. He has been so notified. 

Information has been received to the effect that Bro. 
Grose was paroled after 18 months in gaol and further that 
his parole expired on June 28, 1960, and that he is now in 
hospital after as a result of an operation. Representations, 
however, have been made on his behalf by a member of his 
Lodge and by a brother in another Lodge requesting favour- 
able consideration and a postponement of the decree for 
expulsion. 

Your Committee, having carefully considered all the 
circumstances and to give effect, in part, to the represent- 
ations made on behalf of the accused, recommends that no 
action be taken regarding expulsion until the next Annual 
Communication of Grand Lodge and that in the meantime 
the suspension be continued. 

3. CORONATION LODGE, No. 466, versus BRO. ALLAN 
RITCHIE. 

This case came before Grand Lodge on the report of 
this Committee a year ago (Proceedings of 1959, page 203). 
A brief review of the report at that time shows that Bro. 
Allan Ritchie, a member of Coronation Lodge, No. 466, was 
sentenced in July, 1957, after a plea of guilty to a charge of 
theft, to a term of five months in goal. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 227 

Subsequently, after considerable delay, in December, 
1958, a charge of unmasonic conduct was presented to his 
Lodge which charge was accepted and a request for trial 
by a commission was made by the Lodge to the Grand Master. 
The report of this Committee a year ago commented on the 
fact that the guilt of Bro. Ritchie had been established 
beyond question, both by his own admission of guilt and 
by the conviction of a court of competent jurisdiction. The 
report, adopted by Grand Lodge, also recommended that 
Bro. Allan Ritchie be notified to appear before this Annual 
Communication of Grand Lodge to show cause why he 
should not be expelled. He has been so notified but has 
not appeared. Your Committee, therefore, recommends that 
Bro. Allan Ritchie be expelled. 

4. CORINTHIAN LODGE, No. 669, versus BRO. 
WALTER EARL LASHWAY. 

Bro. Walter Earl Lashway, initiated in Eureka Lodge, 
No. 283, Belleville in 1952, and an affiliated member of 
Corinthian Lodge, No. 669, Cornwall, in 1957, was accused 
of an offence under Part XVI of the Criminal Code in that 
he did, at the City of Cornwall in the County of Stormont 
between October, 1957, and July, 1958, fraudulently and with- 
out colour of right convert to his own use the sum of 
$500.00, and did thereby steal the same contrary to the 
Criminal Code of Canada. 

At the trial in the County Court Judges' Criminal Court 
of the United Counties of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry, 
on December 1st, 1958, the accused pleaded guilty to the 
said charge and was released upon suspended sentence upon 
entering into recognizance without sureties, (a) to keep the 
peace; (b) to be of good behaviour for a period of two years; 
(c) to appear and receive sentence when called upon to do 
so upon breach of his recognizance; (d) to make restitution 
of $500.00 within two years from December 1st, 1958. Sub- 
sequently on April 9, 1959 a charge of unmasonic conduct 
under Rule 1 (n) and (p) was laid in Corinthian Lodge and 
was accepted by the Lodge. A Committee was appointed 
by the Lodge under Rule 20 to investigate the evidence and 
report its findings to the Lodge. 

The Committee, after notice to the accused, met on 
several occasions and came to the conclusion that the evi- 
dence substantiated fully the charge of unmasonic conduct 
laid against Bro. Lashway under Rules 1, (n) and (p). 

In addition to the above mentioned conviction against 
Bro. Lashway on December 1st, 1958, details were placed 
before the Committee of prior convictions for various of- 
fences on record from October, 1940, to April, 1958. 



228 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

The report of the Lodge Committee was dealt with by 
the Lodge at its meeting on September 10th, 1959, and the 
decision of the Lodge was that the accused was guilty of 
the charge as laid and a recommendation was made that 
Bro. Lashway be expelled from the Craft. 

While the trial of the accused appears to have been 
conducted to a greater degree by the Committee under Rules 
20-30 than in the Lodge, it is clear that the Lodge accepted 
the report of the Lodge Committee as evidence of guilt and 
it is also clear that such guilt had been established beyond 
question by the plea of guilt made in, and by the conviction 
of a court of competent jurisdiction. 

After consideration, this Committee feels that the 
finding- of guilt made by the Lodge should be confirmed, 
and, in view of the suggestion made by the Lodge, recom- 
mends that Bro. Walter Earl Lashway be notified to appear 
at the next Annual Communication of this Grand Lodge to 
show cause why he should not be expelled and that, in the 
meantime, his suspension be continued. 

5. SIMCOE LODGE, No. 644, versus BRO. ROBERT 
HUNT. 

Bro. Robert Hunt, a member of Simcoe Lodge, No. 644, 
was. on October 28th, 1959, accused in a Magistrate's Court 
in the City of Toronto, of indecent assault contrary to the 
provisions of the Criminal Code. He was convicted under 
Part XVI or XXIV of the Criminal Code and, after a remand, 
was sentenced to imprisonment for a term of six (6) months 
in the common gaol in Toronto. Psychiatric treatment was 
suggested by the Magistrate. 

Subsequently, a charge of unmasonic conduct was laid 
in the Lodge under Rule l(s) of Grand Lodge. This charge 
was accepted in the Lodge at a meeting held on February 
11th, 1960, after which a request was made that a Commission 
be appointed by the Grand Master to deal with the charge. 
Subsequently a Commission, appointed by the Grand Master, 
met on May 19th, 1960. The accused was not present. How- 
ever, four members of the Lodge, including the Worshipful 
Master, attended the hearing. The Commission was advised 
that the accused had pleaded guilty to the charge before the 
Magistrate. Representations were made on behalf of the 
accused by members of the Lodge present, based on previous 
acquaintances over a period of many years, and on the 
reputation of the accused as a teacher and leader in scouting. 
Comment was made on the fact that the accused had been 
a victim in 1957, of a serious automobile accident and that 
this might have had some bearing on his course of conduct. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 229 

The Commission found that the accused was guilty of 
the charge and recommended his indefinite suspension from 
the Craft. 

Your Committee has reviewed the correspondence and has 
considered carefully the report of the Commission, the 
sentence imposed, the finding of guilt, and the representations 
by the members of the Lodge regarding the reputation of 
the accused in the Lodge and among his associates. However, 
your Committee feels that the sentence of indefinite sus- 
pension recommended by the Commission is not adequate 
and recommends that Bro. Hunt be notified to appear at 
the next Annual Communication of this Grand Lodge to 
show cause why he should not be expelled and that in the 
meantime his suspension should be continued. 

Respectfully and fratenally submitted, 

J. R. RUMBALL, 

Chairman. 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE 
ON BENEVOLENCE 

This report was presented by M.W. Bro. J. P. 
Maher for R.W. Bro. G. F. Clark, who was ill, and 
on motion of the Deputy Grand Master, seconded by 
M.W. Bro. Maher, it was received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

May I submit on behalf of the Members of the Committee 
on Benevolence, the report for the year ended May 31st, 1960. 

This year we are again pleased to report that we have 
not required the entire amount as allocated by Grand Lodge 
for Benevolence during the past year. 

Our Financial Report is as follows: 

Approval was received from Grand Lodge for 

279 applications amounting to $ 63,915.00 

Interim Grants during the year 5,024.72 

$ 68,939.72 
Less cancellations and reductions 4,155.00 

Total Grants paid $ 64,784.72 



230 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

In addition, an amount of $305.00 was also expended 
from the Emergency Fund to take care of cases requiring 
immediate attention. 

A meeting of the Committee was held in Toronto on 
June 10th and 11th, 1960, to receive the report of the Super- 
visor of Benevolence and to review the 271 cases for which 
applications were received for assistance. The attendance 
of the Committee was excellent, and with the information 
made available through the Supervisor, we were able to 
consider these applications with dispatch, at the same time, 
assuring the members of the Craft that each and every 
application would receive due consideration. 

The reduction in the amount of our grants last year 
was largely due to the Governmental assistance which was 
received through low rental housing and the other funds 
which are available through Old Age Security, Old Age 
Assistance, Mothers' and Dependents Allowances, Family 
Allowances and the Hospitalization Plan of the Province of 
Ontario. In addition, we note with a great deal of pleasure 
the provision for Homes for our senior citizens, which takes 
care of the need of those people who are not in a position 
to supply or secure homes for themselves. Our Supervisor 
reports that he has been in several of these Homes and finds 
them to be well managed and comfortable for those who take 
advantage of these splendid residences. Our Supervisor 
reports that he has covered many of the areas and has made 
calls on the recipients of Grand Lodge Benevolence. He has 
received great assistance from the Toronto Masonic Service 
Guild and other Boards throughout the Province. In addition 
the members of our Committee have helped a great deal in 
making calls where necessary, and I would like to express 
our thanks to all who have contributed in this particular way. 
We have, also, received assistance from other jurisdictions 
on our cases which are located outside of the Province^ of 
Ontario, which has helped us a great deal in determining 
just what assistance should be given. I would also like to 
express our sincere thanks to them. 

Unfortunately, there are a number of Lodges who did not 
submit their applications until after the required date of 
June 1st, and the Supervisor has not had an opportunity to 
complete the necessary investigations prior to the meeting of 
the Committee. However, an effort will be made to do so 
before the Annual Communication of Grand Lodge and these 
cases will be dealt with at the meeting of the Committee to 
be held at that time. We also note that many of the ap- 
plications are not filled out completely and consequently, a 
great deal of correspondence is required in order to get 
sufficient information to deal with them properly. 

It has been noted with pleasure that contributions have 
been received from other sources than Grand Lodge funds 
and we wish to express our appreciation for these donations 
which will be used to advantage. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 231 

These are as follows: 

Florence B. Staunton Estate $ 370.77 

Bro. Frank B. Wenger 10.00 

Proceeds from the reception to the Grand 

Master in Ottawa District 60.47 

Proceeds from the Lawn Bowling Tournament 

of the Toronto Districts 65.00 

In connection with the proposed reduction in the amount 
for Benevolence received from the General Funds of Grand 
Lodge, I am happy indeed to give you a quotation from the 
report of the Supervisor of Benevolence. 

"It has been my privilege and pleasure to call on quite 
a number of our dependents, confined in these Institutions 
throughout the Province, and in every case they are happy 
and well cared for. I have recommended to others that 
consideration be given to this type of accommodation, rather 
than live alone and endeavour to provide for themselves. 

"It is of interest to note that during the past eleven 
years, the average amount expended from the General Fund 
for benevolent purposes has been $66,582.00 per year. Last 
year we expended $59,700.00 from the General Fund. There 
has been a gradual decrease each year. This is largely due 
to the circumstances mentioned above. 

"Because of this change, it is felt that the present 
provision in the Constitution of .80 cents per capita for 
Benevolent purposes is more than is required to meet present 
needs and a recommendation to reduce the per capita to .60 
cents is being considered. On our present membership, this 
will provide an amount of $71,774.00 in the General Fund in 
addition to the funds available through the Memorial Ftund 
for benevolent purposes." 

After the examination of the applications received, your 
Committee recommends that the sum of $75,000.00 be set 
aside for the Benevolent work for the year 1960-1961. 

We would also recommend the continuance of our mem- 
bership in the Masonic Relief Association of the United States 
and Canada. 

The work of our Committee has been greatly assisted by 
Right Worshipful Bro. E. G. Dixon, Grand Secretary, and

attendance at the meetings which are necessary to deal with 
matters of Benevolence.

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON 
AUDIT AND FINANCE 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. R. C. 
Berkinshaw, Chairman, who explained that as the 
Estimates contained in this report were based on 
the presumption that the amendments to the Con- 
stitution which would be presented by M.W. Bro. J. 
A. Hearn, Grand Treasurer, would be adopted, he 
would ask that the reception and consideration of his 
report be deferred. The Grand Master so ordered. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

Having reviewed the reports of the Grand Treasurer, the 
Grand Secretary and the Auditor, which have been referred 
to it for consideration by this Annual Communication of 
Grand Lodge, the standing Committee on Audit and Finance 
finds that the same appear to fully and accurately set out 
all pertinent details relative to the financial position of this 
Grand Lodge for the year ended 31st May, 1960. They con- 
tain full information as to receipts and disbursements in 
respect of the General Fund, the Memorial and Semi-Centen- 
nial Funds, complete details of all transactions and changes 
in the Capital Account and schedules of the securities in 
which Grand Lodge funds were invested, as at the above 
mentioned date. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 233 

The Committee wishes to make the following: observations 
on certain subject matters covered by these reports: 

The schedule of investments in the three above mentioned 
Grand Lodge accounts have been carefully reviewed and it 
would appear that all securities in which Grand Lodge funds 
are presently invested can be considered in the category of 
high class Trustee investments — 'the only exception being the 
5% Debentures of Masonic Holdings to the par value of 
$220,000 which have been purchased by the Grand Treasurer 
under the authority of a special Resolution passed by this 
Grand Lodge ait its Annual Communication in 1959. (1959 
Proceedings p. 208). These debentures were acquired in 
accordance with an approved program of providing the neces- 
sary funds for acquisition of the site , and for the construc- 
tion and equipment of our new Grand Lodge offices in the 
City of Hamilton ,which will be completed early this Fall. 

AH Grand Lodge securities are held by the Canada 
Permanent Trust Company as its duly appointed custodian, 
but it should be noted that on May 31, 1960, General Fund 
Investments amounting to the par value of $458,500.00 were 
held by the said Trust Company for the account of the 
Canadian Bank of Commerce, Hamilton, Ontario, as security 
for the estimated loan requirements to finance the new 
Grand Lodge offices. 

Receipts for initiation fees, dues, commutations, interest 
on investments, etc., amounted to $195,286.18. This figure 
is within a few dollars of our forecast a year ago. On the 
other hand, total disbursements of $148,327.40 were $21,303.00 
less than the amount provided in the budget, mainly because 
expenditures for benevolent grants paid out of the General 
Fund were substantially less than the amount provided for 
such purposes. 

Total grants for benevolent purposes amounted to 
$64,784.72 for the past year, or approximately $20,000.00 less 
than estimated requirements. In this regard your Com- 
mittee considers it appropriate to again point out that there 
is a continuing downward trend in the demands on Grand 
Lodge funds for benevolence. This condition is due mainly 
to (a) increased Government Old Age Pension payments and 
(b) tlie benefits provided under the Ontario Hospital Services 
Act, although, as the Grand Treasurer has appropriately 
pointed out in his report, no cases of need which fall within 
the responsibility- of this Grand Lodge have been neglected 
to the slightest degree. 

Further, a special note should be made of the Auditor's 
observation that the resources shown in the General Fund 
Investment Account and Bank balance include a sum of 
$72,214.60, which is available for benevolent purposes only, 
in accordance with the provisions of Section 245 (m) of the 
Constitution. 



234 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Under these conditions, we recommend that for the 
current year payment of all benevolent grants should be 
made out of the General Account up to the amount of the 
appropriation for such purposes indicated in the budget 
and that the Memorial Fund should be allowed to increase 
by the natural means of periodically investing: and reinvest- 
ing the interest received on the capital of the Fund as and 
when occasion may require. 

The time, thought and careful consideration to all cases 
requiring the financial assistance of this Grand Lodge which 
are given by the Chairman, the Supervisor of Benevolence 
and all the members of this Gommittee deserve the highest 
commendation) of our membership. 

Your Committee recommends approval of the six special 
donations, totalling $3,000.00, as reported by the Grand 
Master, (in addition to the grant of $1,000.00 to the Lanark 
Relief Fund, which was approved last year) , but expresses the 
opinion that though these six causes are worthy of our 
financial assistance, they should not be led to assume that 
Grand Lodge support of their respective needs has been 
placed on a permanent basis. 

Details of the insurance coverage placed by Grand Lodge 
and currently in effect have been checked by the Auditor 
and reviewed by the members of this Committee and they are 
satisfied that all necessary precaution is taken to ensure 
that Grand Lodge property, wherever it may be situated, is 
adequately covered against loss by fire, theft or other means. 

By instalments over the past three years, a reserve of 
$21,000.00 has been set up, with the approval of Grand 
Lodge on the recommendation of this Committee, to provide 
for the cost of furnishing and equipping: our new Grand 
Lodge premises on completion. This reserve is included in 
the resources shown in the General Fund Investment Account 
and will be available for such purpose during the current 
year. 

In its review of the matters covered by this report, this 
Committee has received the fullest co-operation and assist- 
ance from the Grand Secretary, the Grand Treasurer and the 
Auditor and now formally recommends to Grand Lodge the 
adoption, without amendment, of the reports submitted by 
the above mentioned officers. They are to be commended 
on the conscientious and faithful performance of the duties 
of their respective offices. Grand Lodge is, indeed, fortunate 
to have the benefit of their talents, experience and devoted 
interest. 

In presenting fox the consideration and approval of the 
membership the following Estimate of Income and Expendi- 
tures under the General Fund for the current year, your 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 235 

Committee has anticipated approval of the amendments to 

the Constitution proposed in the Notice of Motion duly given 
by M.W. Bro. J. A, Hearn, under date May 14, 1960.

Estimated Surplus Income over Expenditures ....$ 63.80 



We believe that with the anticipated increased income 
resulting from the amendments to the Constitution referred 
to above, Grand Lodge will be able to meet all its financial 
obligations during the current year, but it will be noted 
that the total Estimated Expenditures are only a few dollars 
less than the total Estimated Income. 

However, we submit this estimate with the reservation 
that the extraordinary circumstances which will prevail 
during the current year, marking the completion of and 
moving into new Grand Lodge premises under entirely new 
conditions of occupancy may considerably offset its accuracy. 

All of which is respectfully and fraternally submitted, 



On behalf of the Committee, 



R. C. BERKINSHAW, 

Chairman.

Following" the adoption of the amendments to

Report of the Committee on Audit and Finance be 
now adopted. The motion was carried. 

REPORT OF THE ADVISORY COMMITTEE ON 
LODGE BUILDINGS 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. E. G. 
Dixon in the absence through illness of V.W. Bro. 
George T. Evans., Chairman, and on motion of the 
Deputy Grand Master, seconded by R.W. Bro. Dixon, 
it was received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

I beg to present the third annual report of the Advisory 
Committee on Lodge Buildings. 

For those of you who, perhaps, are not familiar with the 
duties of this Committee, I would say that in 1958 the Grand 
Master directed that a committee be set up to formulate 
requirements and regulations to govern the erection of new 
Masonic Temples or the remodelling of existing ones. The 
Committee can give advice and assistance in the planning of 
the various lodge rooms and can furnish detailed instructions 
regarding 1 fire escapes, stairs, toilet rooms, furnace rooms, 
lighting, ventilating- and other matters pertaining to con- 
struction of Lodge Buildings. 

A bulletin has been prepared setting out in detail the 
various requirements. It is designated form L.B. 2 and can 
be had on application to the Grand Secretary. 

We repeat here what we have stated on numerous oc- 
casions that Lodges contemplating new buildings, or the 
altering of existing buildings, should write to the Grand 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1960 239 

Secretary for this Eulletin L.B. 2, BEFORE any move is 
made to prepare plans or set up financial arrangements. 
This will save everyone concerned much time and effort. 

The Grand Secretary will also provide a bulletin on 
"Procedure" for the guidance of Lodge Officers in initiat- 
ing building schemes. 

From the time that the regulations were passed by 
Grand Lodge in July of 1958, 49 Lodges have submitted 
plans for consideration by the Committee. Many sketches 
have been prepared and numerous reports have been compiled 
containing instruction and advice on all manner of construct- 
ion and planning problems. 

The work the Committee is doing seems to be paying 
big dividends. We are very appreciative of the many letters 
and personal messages from so many Lodges stating how 
glad they are that there is such a committee to guide and 
advise them in their building efforts. 

We also appreciate the staunch support we have had 
from the Grand Master on matters where some Lodges seek 
an easing of some of the requirements vital to the safety 
and comfort of the lodge members, such as proper fire 
exits, safe stairs, and suitable toilet accommodation, etc. 

We would also like to bring before this Grand Lodge 
one item of great concern to your Committee, that is the 
lack of proper fire exits from many of our lodge rooms and 
banquet rooms. In a number of cases where plans have been 
submitted we have had to be very insistent on Lodges pro- 
viding fire exits which comply with requirements of the 
Ontario Fire Marshal. 

We know that all will agree that one Mason's life is 
worth more than all the time and expense it would take to 
correct hazardous conditions in every Lodge in the jurisdic- 
tion. We strongly urge all lodge officers to take a hard 
look at their fire exits and, where necessary, take steps to 
have them made safe. Our Committee would gladly give 
advice on this important matter. We urge District Deputies 
on their official visits to observe the exit arrangements and 
report to the Grand Secretary any that they consider 
hazardous. 

In conclusion, we congratulate the many Lodges on their 
efforts to improve their Masonic Temples, but at the same 
time we must express our regret that there are still many 
lodge premises which are anything but a credit to the Craft. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted, 

GEO. T. EVANS, 

Chairman.

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE 
ON FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 

To the Most Worshipful, the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M., of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

Your Committee on Fraternal Correspondence for the 
Masonic Year 1959-60, composed of R.W. Bro. E. G. Dixon, 
and M.W. Bro. W. J. Dunlop, Chairman, reports as follows: 

FOREWORD 

The kindly, genial Past Grand Master, M.W. Bro. N. C. 
Hart, who was appointed Chairman of this Committee a year 
ago, passed to the Grand Lodge Above in December of 1959, 
after having, during his long illness, written only six Reviews. 
What he did, he did well and he is sorely missed by his 
colleagues on this Committee. 

Since this Report was first drafted, the Committee 
suffered an irreparable loss in the passing on May 1st of 
another former Chairman, the Late M.W. Bro. Frank A. Copus 
who was a tower of strength to our work and who was always 
available for consultation. 

Just as this Repart was ready for the printer, another 
blow fell when M.W. Bro. C. S. Hamilton passed suddenly 
away on May 29th. He was a valued member of this Com- 
mittee whose sound advice we greatly miss. 

It is hoped that the Reviews herewith submitted may be 
found interesting and instructive. They may be useful to 
students of Masonic Education. Those who read them will 
observe that, especially in the United States, much thought 
is being given to two problems which worry a good many 
Grand Masters. 

One of these difficulties is the diminishing attendance 
at meetings of constituent Lodges and another is the de- 
creasing number of applicants for admission. Losses in 
membership are reported by many Grand Secretaries. 

Several Grand Masters deplore the fact that Masters of 
Lodges are so poorly prepared; they have not learned the 
ritual and, it is said, many cannot open or close a Lodge 
properly. 

Certainly, these trends are not yet generally noticeable 
in Canada nor in Grand Lodges that follow the British 
tradition. In Ontario, any prospective Master who has not 
thoroughly mastered the contents of the History and of the 
"Manual for Masonic Instructors and Students", is not pre- 



paring: as he should for the honour and the responsibility 
which may be his in the future. 

It may be that some Masters prize the honour and do 
not take the responsibility seriously. They should forget 
the former and concentrate on the latter. 

Of course, in these days there are more counter attract- 
ions than there were in earlier years and this condition may 
account for decreasing; attendance in many places ; but perhaps 
the former interest in Masonry is diluted and dissipated in 
Grand Lodges where all sorts of organizations for women, for 
boys, and for girls are recognized as Masonic. Why should 
they be so labelled ? They are good organization's, of course, 
but why must they be known as Masonic ? Our Y.M.C.A's, 
our Y.W.C.A's, our Boy Scouts, our Girl Guides, our church 
groups, and many other groups are rendering excellent 
service but no one would ithink of asking that they be known 
as Masonic societies; they would not ask that and we would 
not grant such a request. The British tradition is our guide. 

Almost every Grand Lodge in the United States and in 
Britain operates a Masonic Home or a Masonic School or 
both. In Canada, only Nova Scotia has a home for aged 
Masons. In Ontario our Governments are building Homes 
for senior citizens at a most satisfactory rate and our 
Children's Aid Society looks after dependent children. Why 
should Grand Lodge duplicate government services, as some 
of our members advocate ? 

In these Reviews attention' is directed toward differences 
and similarities in procedure and operation 'and it is hoped 
that those who read will realize .that Masonry is far from 
being "in the doldrums", as some try to say, but neverthe- 
less we must aill be more enthusiastic in the future than we 
have been in the past. Only devotion to Masonic principles 
will save the situation. 

Perhaps a fair summary of the basic statements in the 
Addresses of most Grand Masters in the southern half of 
this continent might be given in two sentences. First: The 
foes of lodge attendance are modern entertainment, late 
hours, long speeches, poor ritualistic work, lack of emphasis 
on benevolence, lack of interest. Second: While Past 
Masters may support and Wardens may assist, the success 
of any Lodge depends almost entirely on the Master; he is 
the key man. 

All of which is fraternally and respectfully submitted. 

W. J. DUNLOP, 

Chairman. 



Fraternal Correspondence and Reviews 



ALABAMA— 1959 

139th Annual Communication — November 17 - 18 

Grand Master, 1958-59— M.W. Bro. R. E. Berryman 
Grand Master, 1959-60— M.W. Bro. J. L. Lawson 

Lodges, 435. Membership, 76,057. Gain, 626. 

According <to the Masonic Law in this State, a Lodge 
that is not represented at Grand Lodge for two successive 
years must forfeit its charter. Three Lodges suffered this 
penalty but a compromise was effected in two cases. Not- 
withstanding this, 63 Lodges took the first step towards 
forfeiture by failing to be represented at this Communication. 

There must be some good reason, not apparent on the 
surface at least, for printing twenty-one pages of lists of 
"defunct" Lodges, with locations and dates; the first five 
became defunct in 1821. There are hundreds of them; some 
forfeited their charters; some surrendered their charters; 
others were consolidated; and others "folded" up; but their 
memory ds kept green, year by year, in the Proceedings. 

For the installation ceremonies of one Lodge a dispens- 
ation was required from the Grand Master because the first 
three officers were absent! Two Lodges asked pel-mission 
to solicit aid from other Lodges to finance their new building 
and this permission was quite properly refused. 

Dispensations were issued to nine Lodges authorizing 
them to mortgage their property! 

"Last year at Grand Lodge", said the Grand Master in 
his Address, "the Canadian Travelling Symbol of Goodwill, 
which has travelled over a great portion of the world, was 
presented to the Grand Lodge of Alabama to be used in some 
of its meetings. This Symbol was present at the corner- 
stone laying of Lamon Chapel Lodge, No. 727 on September 
12th, 1959, at which time the signatures of Grand Lodge 
Officers present .... were inscribed on its pages. This 
Symbol will continue its tour of the world when directions 
for its next visit are received from Imperial Lodge, No. 543, 
Toronto, Canada." 

The Masonic Home had shown great improvement during 
the year on account of efficient management. One Lodge 



4 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

pleaded for an extension of its life for one year though it 
had not been represented at Grand Lodge for two consecutive 
years. The extension was granted but was soon withdrawn 
because the officers showed that they did not appreciate the 
courtesy extended to them by the Grand Master. 



ALBERTA— 1959 

54th Annual Communication — June 10 - 11. 

Grand Master, 1958-59— M.W. Bro. D. D. McQueen 
Grand Master, 1959-60— M.W. Bro. David Little 

Lodges, 168. Membership, 18,674. Gain, 318. 

The Committee on the Condition of Masonry commences 
its Report, quite properly, on an optimistic note, stating. 
"The general condition of Masonry compares fairly well with 
that of the preceding years; the Craft appears to be moving 
along in its well-ordered way, with steady progress, healthy 
growth, and with beneficient influence upon the minds and 
characters of its members." Of course, the problems and 
the difficulties are common to all Grand Lodges on this 
Continent and the Committee goes on to say that lodge 
attendance has not improved; that the amount of dues^ in 
arrears is too large; and that there is room for much im- 
provement in the attention being given to Masonic Education. 
Thus the Committee faces the facts in candid fashion. 

In the Foreword to his generous and thoughtfully- 
written Reviews, W. Bro. H. F. Whittred lays his finger 
accurately on at least one of the problems; one which, as he 
says, is becoming tragic, when he reports that educational 
topics and social evenings have not produced any result of a 
permanent nature. "There is no doubt," he goes on to say, 
"that our Lodges are faced with terrific competition and the 
brethren are induced to distribute their time to unimportant 
and definitely third-rate activities. Is it that our values 
are becoming mixed? Do we major in the minor things of 
life and give precedence to light, frothy, and time-consuming 
interests that do not raise the moral, spiritual, or intellectual 
level ? This should have serious consideration in view of the 
fact that there is a definite falling-off of new applicants." 
(There is sound philosophy.) 

The same writer tells his brethren that committees on 
character are taking their duties more seriously which may 
mean a reduction in the number of candidates but this is 
more than compensated for by the high class of men admit- 
ted. (This is progress of the right sort.) 

Here is another cause of poor attendance. The Librarian 
says, "It is disappointing to report that very little use has 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 5 

been made of the library during the past year. It hardly 
seems worthwhile to purchase new books and place them on 
the shelves if the brethren are not going to use them." 
(Surely Masonic reading is good for all Masons, young and 
old.) 

The Committee on Masonic Education has depended 
largely on "The Bulletin" and on visits and addresses to 
Lodges "close to home". Appreciation is expressed for the 
efforts of some Masters "to keep Masonry alive" by creating 
a deversdfied programme. A general programme was recom- 
mended a year ago but no information regarding its possible 
success has been received and now the Committee asks that 
a chairman be appointed at each district meeting. 

The Higher Education Bursary Committee awarded two 
bursaries of $500 each and two of $700 each. For the next 
year donations were asked for and the sum of $4,432 was 
received. The Committee recommended that Grand Lodge 
make a larger grant. (This is good work. We hope to hear 
of further progress.) 

Benevolence is one of the primary projects of this pro- 
gressive Grand Lodge. 



ARKANSAS— 1959 

118th Annual Communication — November 17 - 18 

Grand Master, 1958-59— M.W. Bro. John T. Bvrd 
Grand Master, 1959-60— M.W. Bro. J. A. Laner 

Lodges, 380. Membership, 55,903. Loss, 242. 

The Grand Secretary reported with regret another loss 
in membership. "This loss," said he, "appears to be caused 
by unfinished material and suspensions for non-payment of 
dues. It is noted that 1,567 candidates were elected this 
year and only 1,299 were raised. With 1,519 suspensions it 
seems that more are eroing out the back door than are coming 
in the front door." Not since 1954 has he been able to report 
a gain in membership. 

The Committee on Masonic Education had presented a 
series of questions and answers for each of the three degrees 
and had the approval of Grand Lodge, two years ago, to 
require that each candidate "stand proficiency" in these as 
well as in the regular lectures. However, this had been found 
to be too much burdensome "homework and the approval 
was rescinded. 

Grand Lodge voted $2,000 to purchase dental equipment 
for the Children's Hospital. 



6 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

"The Board of Custodians", said the Grand Master in 
his Address, "continues to be one of the most important 
Boards of our Grand Lodge. It is composed of seven of our 
brethren who are dedicated to the work that has been assign- 
ed to them. They know the esoteric work of our Grand 
Jurisdiction and are skilled in the art of teaching." He gave 
strong commendation of the service rendered by the Com- 
mittee on Masonic Education which held fourteen educational 
institutes in the zones into which the Jurisdiction is divided. 

The Grand Master urged that interest be maintained in 
the Acacia Fraternity until the total amount of one dollar 
per member has been achieved. He warned some constituent 
Lodges that they must not overlook or neglect holding stated 
communications on the two St. John's Days. 

"Freemasonry in Arkansas has had a good year," the 

Grand Master stated. "We have tried," he went on, "to 

impress upon all who would listen the importance of the 
great moral and spiritual virtues of Freemasonry." 

There is a long and interesting report from the Public 
Schools Committee. 



CALIFORNIA— 1959 

110th Annual Communication — September 28 to October 2 

Grand Master, 1958-59— M.W. Bro. P. N. Myers 
Grand Master, 1959-60— M.W. Bro. J. L. Shell 

Lodges, 691. Membership, 240,128. Gain, 2,474. 

There were thirty-one Special Communications during 
the year, for laying the corner-stones of four public schools, 
three public buildings, three Masonic buildings and the dedi- 
cation ceremonies for six public schools, as well as other 
Masonic functions. It is encouraging to know that Grand 
Lodge is still asked to lay corner-stones. 

When the Grand Master heard that^ installation 
ceremonies we're being held in private rooms in hotels and 
clubs, he issued a ruling, (which was confirmed by Grand 
Lodge) "that such open installation ceremonies may continue 
to be held'in a building in which a public bar is also operating 
provided that such bar is not on the same floor as that in 
which the installation is held." He warmly thanked those 
who had forwarded the important work of Masonic Education 
and Research and commended the activities of the three 
Research Lodges. He answered in the affirmative a question 
asking whether the purchase of a corner-stone for a public 
school building is a proper lodge expense. He replied, 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 7 

"Since a corner-stone is essential for such ceremonies, it may 
be furnished" under Grand Lodge laws. 

Reviews of the Proceedings of other Grand Lodges had' 
appeared quarterly in the "California Freemason," two 
copies of which had been sent to each Lodge. This pro- 
gramme will be continued and no Reviews appear in the 
Proceedings. The library and the museum are to be greatly 
improved and expanded. The experience with scholarships 
for advanced study in higher education had been dormant 
because the Committee found the submissions of applicants 
wanting- in many respects and because the universities having 
graduate schools had not co-operated. 

In 1959 there was extreme Masonic alertness and ready 
service concerning public schools everywhere in California. 
No non-political, non-sectarian, non-professional body of 
intelligent thinkers gives more attention to public education, 
public schools, or children in public schools than do the more 
than 1,000 Masonic Lodges in our State." 

Eighteen boards of relief advanced $40,222.29 to sojourn- 
ers and their families during the year and of this large 
amount only $763.61 was not repaid by the sojourner's Lodge. 
These cases are carefully analyzed. 

In 1955 the then Grand Master ruled that the playing 
of bingo is contrary to Masonic law and policy but the game 
has become such a social activity that it was found necessary 
to revise that ruling in 1959 and to make a number of 
restriction dealing chiefly with money and publicity. Now 
bingo can be lawfully played. 



COLORADO-1959 

98th Annual Communication — January 27 - 28 

Grand Master, 1958-59— M.W. Bro. G. B. Van Fleet 
Grand Master, 1959-60— M.W. Bro. C. J. Gobble 

Lodges, 161. Membership, 46,490. Gain, 201. 

At each visit to a constituent Lodge the Grand Master 
spoke on the necessity of understanding and supporting the 
public schools. This the brethren should do, he said, noft 
necessarily as Masons, but principally as Americans striving 
to retain their great American heritage. 

By a recent vote, the people of Colorado legalized 
"bingo" and raffles for fraternal, charitable, and chwch 
organizations if licensed by the state. This being the case, 



8 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

a Lodge asked whether, having a family night, "bingo" might 
be played on a nominal basis of only five cents per card. 
The Grand Master said, "No" and went on to point out 
that Freemasonry is expected to exemplify a high degree 
of morality in each community and that to permit gambling 
in any form in any lodge building would certainly subject 
the entire Masonic fraternity to justified contempt and 
ridicule. 

The Grand Master stressed the importance of decorum 
at Masonic funerals, asking that the officers be proficient 
and sincere in the rendition of the ceremony, and that tihe 
attendance of brethren be large neough to be representative, 
in order that Masonry may enhance its stature in the com- 
munity. He is convinced that a great force is at work in 
the nation to relegate our fraternity into the background of 
the consciousness of the public. One method being used to 
accomplish this is through opposition to the laying of the 
corner-stones of public buildings by officers of Grand Lodge. 
The same situation exists here; twenty years or more ago 
Grand Lodge laid corner-stones but not in recent years! 

A recommendation, though an informal one, was that 
the dues paid by members of Lodges should be at least 
$10.00 per year. Dues are too low in many Lodges. 

A Committee appointed to investigate lodge attendance 
found that the average for the year was 17 per cent, the 
smaller Lodges doing considerably better than the larger 
ones. Indeed, six Lodges with memberships over 1,000 each 
had attendance records of 5.4 per cent. Recommendations 
for improvement which the Committee made include, punctu- 
ality, advanced planning of programs, precision in ritual, 
personal invitations to members, giving members work to 
do, a question box, special meetings, social events. This 
thorough-going plan deserves to succeed. 

The Committee on Masonic Education gives a sketch 
of the lives and the service of prominent Masons who were 
pioneers and who have left their mark in the history of the 
state; and it recommends re-reading the book "Our Masonic 
Heritage". Books are recommended for individuals, those on 
sale by the Grand Secretary and those in the Masonic 
Library. Seven service letters were distributed during the 
year and the Research Lodge of Colorado is making a fine 
contribution to Masonic knowledge. 

Masonic Benevolence receives due attention, 58 bene- 
ficiaries being assisted from the fund during the year. We 
hoM to hear more of the success that may attend the efforts 
of mis Grand Lodge in solving almost universal problems. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 9 

CONNECTICUT— 1959 

171st Annual Communication — April 1-2. 

Grand Master — M.W. Bro. Albert H. Ruwet 
Lodges, 132. Membership, 48,095. Loss, 36. 

Unfortunately, the Grand Master was unable to be 
present, being seriously ill at home and the Deputy Grand 
Master presided. The very efficient Grand Secretary is R.W. 
Bro. Earle K. Halings, P.G.M. who has visited our Annual 
Communication occasionally. 

Customs and terminology vary in various Grand Lodges. 
For example, the Minutes tell us that the Acting Grand 
Master had Grand Lodge "purged," which is a new expression 
to us, and the Roll of Lodges was called only until it was 
found that a "constitutional number of Lodges" had responded. 

The Grand Master's Address was read in his absence. 
He began by stating that peace and harmony prevail and 
that the influence of Masonry is growing in strength every 
year. He asked for a continuance of this condition and urged 
(adherence to the ancient land marks, yet permitting freedom 
for the development of Freemasonry . He had _ been asked 
whether Prince Hall Negro Lodges are clandestine and had 
replied that they have their own Grand Lodge; that they 
have not asked for recognition nor has such been extended 
to them. 

Appointments to the office of District Deputy Grand 
Master are made by the Grand Master on the recommendation 
of officers of the Grand Lodsre in the several Districts who 
know the local conditions. "Those appointed last year have 
filled their offices", said the Grand Master, "with dignity 
and efficiency". They had also served as hosts and guides 
for the visitors who came on Sundays to the Home and 
Hospital. The Grand Master had not tried to break any 
records in visitations but he attended 326 committee meetings 
•^-"Blue Lodges, affiliated bodies, Eastern Star and 
Amaranth". However, the diary shows that he really made 
a remarkably large number of visitations, in spite of his 
modest disclaimer. 

The Deputy Grand Master also reports to Grand Lodge 
and his activities, managerial and fraternal, make a formid- 
able list. For the second year in succession it was not 
necessary to discipline anv Lod^e for failure to be repre- 
sented at Grand Lodge. Tn 1958 there were presentations 
of 172 "fifty-vear buttons" in 75 Loderes. The new Grand 
Master is M.W. Bro. Gordon Ford Christie. 



10 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

There is an active committee on Masonic Information 
and Education which publishes and distributes a Manual on 
"Candidate Instruction" ; Study Clubs have been commenced 
in several Lodges; a Manual of Masonic Information is to be 
printed for sale and a mail-order circulating library is to be 
established. 

This strong old Grand Lodge is carrying on so mag- 
nificently that it is a pleasure to read its Proceedings. 



DELAWARE— 1959 

154th Annual Communication — October 7-8 

Grand Master, 1958-59— M.W. Bro. C. W. Lewis 
Grand Master, 1959-60— M.W. Bro. J. B. Kilvington 

Lodges, 24. Membership, 8,553. Gain, 152. 

Special Communications were held in June and in August 
for the purpose of laying corner-stones, one of a college 
building, (the other of a library. It is a pleasure to learn 
that this custom persists. 

The Grand Master visted each of the Lodges during has 
year and also made a good many visitations outside his 
Jurisdiction, frequently accompanied by the Grand Secretary, 
R.W. Bro. Chester R. Jones, a genial friend of ours who 
has become a veteran of the Craft. Though the Masons of 
Delaware are proud of their Masonic Home and though 
their annual contributions continue to increase each year, 
the number of contributions is still a small percentage of 
the total membership. The response to the general invitation 
to Masons to attend church services on "Masonic Church 
Day" was very gratifying. 

In his Address the Grand Master said, "I am happy to 
report that Masonry in the State of Delaware ds at a high 
peak. The members of the Fraternity are enjoying the 
fellowship and fraternalism which indicates that peace and 
harmony prevail throughout our Jurisdiction. For the 
Masonic year just completed we have enjoyed a normal gain 
in our membership." 

There was in Delaware an organization of men, a 
prerequisite of whose membership was that an applicant 
must be a Master Mason in good standing. When the Grand 
Master was told that this organization was sponsoring un- 
lawful entertainment, he summond the two principal officers 
to meet him and with him representatives of Grand Lodge 
and of the police. After full discussion, the Grand Master 
ordered that the offending organization be dissolved and his 
edict was obeyed.

The originality displayed by the Foreign Correspondent, 
M.W. Bro. Allmond, is most refreshing. For the twelfth 
time, again in topical form, he presents his reviews of the 
things which he feels will be of most interest at home and 
abroad — and he does his work exceedingly well. His com- 
ment on the outburst of Mississippi against Nova Scotia is 
this: "Once again, the colour question rears its ugly head. 
It is this reviewer's fond hope that no further developments 
may happen. Will Mississippi withdraw from the Grand 
Masters' Conferences' because New Jersey with its subordin- 
ate Alpha Lodge (Negro) is there? Or Puerto Rico? or 
England? or Scotland? or Ireland? and others that since 
their foundings have never drawn the colour line? This 
reviewer wagers it will not." 

During the year, each degree is exemplified eleven times 
in the central Temple in order that every elective officer 
may have an opportunity to become proficient in his work. 

There is an excellent scholarship plan by which, since 
1921, 113 students have been assisted. Delaware's Report 
is an optimistic one. 



DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA— 1959 

149th Annual Communication — December 16 - 17 

Grand Master, 1959— M.W. Bro. R. A. Bogley 
Grand Master, 1960— M.W. Bro. J. A. Johnston 

Lodges, 48. Membership, 23,583. Loss, 410. 

The Grand Secretary commented as follows: "For the 
sixth consecutive year it becomes necessary to report a loss 
of membership— 410. This is a very large loss but it is 70 
less than last year. The record shows a gratifying increase 
in the number of re-instatements but, unfortunately, the 
number of dimits increased. The loss by non-payment of 
dues — 221 — decreased by 25 over the previous year and _ it 
behooves each Lodge to use every effort available to elimin- 
ate that loss." 

The Grand Lecturer read an excellent report on the 
progress made in providing instruction in ritualistic work. 
"Out of a total of 333 progressive line officers, 117 attended 
one-half or more of the 36 school sessions. There were only 
16 officers who failed to attend any sessions of the school." 

The Committee on Accounts reported, in part, as follows: 
"The wisdom of the Grand Lodge action at a special com- 
munication in November. 1957, in approving a special assess- 
ment of $1.00 per member was again demonstrated during 



12 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

the year. Without these funds, receipts of the Grand Lodge 
would have fallen short of expenses, not including payments 
for account of the Masonic Temple Association, by $14,606. 
The corresponding figure for 1958 was $13,071 and it is 
estimated that the 1960 deficit will exceed this latter amount. 
The regular $1.00 per member assessment for the support of 
Grand Lodge was established in 1909. It is simply impossible 
for the Grand Lodge to meet current expenses for Salaries, 
taxes, insurance, supplies, and all the other operating: costs 
with the per capita revenue established 50 years ago." 
(This quotation is given here because it concisely describes 
a situation with which we and others are thoroughly familiar.) 

The Committee on Masonic Education recommended the 
establishment of a Research Lodge and the revival of the 
lodge system of Masonic Education. This Committee makes 
a distinction (which some fail to make) between ritualistic 
instruction and education in the history and the philosophy 
of Masonry. This type of education "sharpens the Mason's 
interest in Freemasonry which is the first step in regular 
attendance." 

A reading of the Proceedings of this Grand Lodge gives 
one the definite impression that it is well and carefully 
managed. 



ENGLAND— 1959 

Quarterly Communication — September 2nd, 1959 

Notice of Quarterly Communication of November 21st, 1959 

Grand Master — M.W. Rt. Hon. the Earl of Scarbrough, 
K.G., G.S.C.I., G. CLE., G.C.V.O., T,D. 

Grand Secretary — V.W. James W. Stubbs. 

Grand Lodge meets in Freemasons' Hall, Great Queen 
Street, London, W.C.2. There cannot be in all the Masonic 
world a more beautiful, more complete edifice for its purpose 
than Freemasons' Hall. How many Lodges owe allegiance 
to the United Grand Lodge of England? Who knows? 
Thousands, many thousands of English Masons are living 
in all parts of the British Commonwealth and elsewhere. How 
many? No one can know. There are Lodges under the 
English Constitution in almost every part of the globe 
except in the United States; there are three in Canada 
besides the English District Grand Lodge in Newfoundland. 
It is a vast Masonic empire. 

The Board of Benevolence reported that, on May 20th, 
52 petitioners were "relieved" to the extent of $21,000; on 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 13 

June 17th, 49 petitioners received, in all, $18,000; and, on 
July 15th, 36 petitioners were provided with a total otf 
$13,000. (These amounts are given at, roughly, $3.00 to the 
pound.) 

The Prestonian Lectures are to be delivered in 1960 by 
Sir Sydney Pope; these lectures are allocated each year to 
two Provincial Lodges and one London Lodge, selected from 
those that have made formal application. These Lodges are 
expected "to afford facilities for all Freemasons in their 
area, as veil as their own members, to participate and thus 
ensure an attendance worthy of the occasion." The title 
of the Lectures is to be "The Growth of Freemasonry in 
England and Wales since 1717." 

There was a serious case against a member who, being 
acting Treasurer of a Lodge, "exploited the situation to his 
own financial advantage" to the extent of more than $1,800. 
When this was discovered, the offender obtained a personal 
loan of $1,200 and paid this into the lodge accounts. The 
Board of General Purposes recommended that, after 33 years 
of membership, he be expelled from the Craft. 

Since the previous Quarterly Communication the Grand 
Master had granted Warrants to 13 new Lodges, numbered 
from 7654 to 7666. There was an attendance of 659 at 
this Communication. From September to November Warrants 
were granted to 16 new Lodges numbered from 7667 to 7682, 
one in Ghana, one in Kampala (East Africa), another in 
"Manama, Manama, Bahrin, Arabian Gulf". Of course, no 
one can know definitely whether, during 1969, there was a 
gain or a loss in membership but, since 29 new Lodges were 
warranted and there is no suggestion of any defection, ^ it 
may safely be assumed that "the Mother of us all" is in- 
creasing daily in strength and in influence as has been rather 
generally the case since 1717. In the British Iseles we see 
Freemasoniry at its best. 



FLORIDA— 1959 

130th Annual Communication — April 21, 22 and 23 

Grand Master, 1958-59— M.W. Bro. J. L. Hall 
Grand Master, 1959-60— M.W. Bro. G. R. Porter

The Fraternal Reviews seem to be particularly well done 
and are most interesting. Our Proceedings are reviewed in 
a kindly manner, with some comments which are especially 
significant; for example, "It seems membership in O.E.S. is 
improper and unlawful". Correct. Another is, "Grand Lodge 



14 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

seems to be handling its benevolent funds in such a 
satisfactory manner that there is no talk of a Masonic 
Home. Surely non-resident relief to the needy is the 
sensible and more satisfactory method." We thank M.W. 
Bro. Home P.G.M. for his commendation. 

During the year many Lodges requested permission to 
incur indebtedness for improvements to lodge facilities. 
Grand Lodge has approximately $750,000 in cash and liquid 
securities. There is no Committee on Masonic Education 
but the Grand Master recommends the appointment of three 
committees; (a) "to study the possibilities of publishing an 
official magazine or newspaper that will carry to the Craft 
full information on all matters of Masonic interest"; (b) to 
study the problem of low attendance at lodge meetings; 
(c) to study the possibility of setting up a training school 
for lodge secretaries. It is noticeable in the report of 
several committees that there is a definite opinion in their 
Grand Jurisdiction and in many others, that many lodge 
secretaries are extremely lax and are failing in their im- 
portant duties. 

There were at least three unusual questions. First. 
Is it proper for a Lodge to conduct graveside funeral services 
for interment of ashes of a deceased brother whose remains 
were cremated? "Yes." Second. If an applicant owns stock 
in a liquor manufacturing company, is he eligible for ad- 
mission? "No." Third. If an applicant is engaged in the 
selling of light wines and beers is he eligible for admission? 
"Yes." "Consistency, thou are a jewel." A U.D. Lodge has 
no authority to collect an affiliation fee nor to issue receipts 
for dues to members. Lists of addresses of members must 
not fall into the hands of persons who would exploit them 
for commercial purposes. 

Seven new Lodges were established. The Grand Secre- 
tary was obliged to write, in some instances, three of four 
letters each to elicit the information required from some 
lodge secretaries. There were entirely too many errors and 
omissions in many lodge reports and the Grand Secretary 
suggests that lodge secretaries should be "happy to have 
their annual returns accurate in every respect." Fifteen 
Lodges did not confer any degrees during the year; six 
Lodges reported work in the first degree only. 

A Committee on Actual Past Master Degree reports 
"that we have had 191 applicants with 188 receiving the 
degrees who have been regularly elected and installed as 
Masters of their particular Lodges." 

The Reviewer very properly Comments as follows; 
"Poor attendance is, of course, one of the problems confront- 
ing all Grand Lodges but hasn't that been the case always?" 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 15 

He attributes this to ritual being given in a non-impressive, 
sing-song manner. We say that, as usual, he has 1 hit at 
least one nail on the head. 



GEORGIA— 1959 

173rd Annual Communication — October 27 - 28 

Grand Master, 1958-59— M.W. Bro. R. M. Vandergriff 
Grand Master, 1959-60— M.W. Bro. E. A. McWhorter 

Lodges, 481. Membership, 99,703. Gain, 393. 

Addressing his audience on the topic, "The Craft at 
Labour," the Grand Master affirmed that, "in general, 
Masonry in Georgia is holding its own. However, we are 
experiencing a transition period that is having its effect 
on a great number of our Lodges." "The rural Lodges," 
he said, "'have few candidates and life in the cities leaves 
many men no time for Masonry." "I fear," he said, "that 
sometimes we recite our rituals as a matter of form with 
too little expression" and he expressed the hope that every 
member would do his part to make his Lodge not only 
prosperous but also "one that has something that money 
can't buy — good Masonic fellowship." Reverting to the 
conferring of degrees he warned his brethren that the 
candidate must not be made a laughing stock for the 
amusement of onlookers. (In Lodges that follow the British 
tradition this warning is never heard and is> never necessary 
— pardon us for this remark.) 

What unusual ideas some Masters express! One of them 
asked for permission to confer the last section of the Master 
Mason degree in a cemetery! Of course, the Grand Master 
declined to permit this. 

It was reported to the Grand Master that a member of 
one of the Lodges, who had a grocery store, was selling beer 
as well as groceries. Finding the report correct, the Grand 
Master ordered that charges be laid against the Masonic 
grocer. 

When a formal complaint was made that Masonic politics 
was rampant in a Lodge, that caucuses had been held and 
solicitation had been general, the Grand Master declared 
the election of officers null and void and ordered a new 
election even though the officers had been installed. (This 
was a courageous act which FihouM be a good lesson.) A 
Lodge sent out a general letter soliciting funds for a new 
building. This Lodge was instructed to return all such 
funds received and was given a reprimand by the Grand 
Master. 



16 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

During the year two new Lodges were constituted, two 
Lodges were consolidated with two others, and one Lodge 
surrendered its charter. The Home for Children, to Which 
is assigned 45 per cent of the per capita tax, is rendering 
excellent service; there are 70 boys and girls there. Thirteen 
young people, formerly in the Home, are attending college 
on scholarships provided by the Higher Education Fund to 
which 349 Lodges contributed $19,372. (This is gratifying 
information.) 

The official publication, the "Masonic Messenger," is 
said to be a most enlightening magazine. 88,000 copies are 
mailed each month; disbursements exceed receipts by ap- 
proximately $13,000. Some Lodges are not meeting regularly; 
some do not confer degrees; and attendance is generally low. 
However, all this is to be corrected. 



IDAHO— 1959 

93rd Annual Communication — September 15-17 

Acting Grand Master — M.W. Bro. Elmer E. Nelson 

Lodges, 84. Membership, 14,862. Gain, 104. 

Most unfortunately this Grand Lodge lost its Grand 
Master, M.W. Bro. Glen W. Royse, on July 14th, 1959, at 
the age of 49, after an illness of several months. 

Befor a Senior Warden can be promoted to the chair of 
Master in Idaho, he must have qualified for a "certificate of 
proficiency", and it is gratifying to read how strictly this 
rule is enforced. In one Lodge, the Master, the Secretary, 
and eleven other Past Masters and brethren (perhaps 13 is 
xmlucky) asked the District Deputy Grand Master to issue 
the certificate, though they knew that the Senior Warden 
had not learned all of the necessary lectures. The District 
Deputy Grand Master refused. However, an election was 
held and the Senior Warden was elected: a second ballot 
was demanded and he was elected again. The Grand Master 
then ruled that this election was null and void and ordered 
that all the officers remain in their offices until their 
successors were elected and installed. 

A ruling of unusual interest was that there must be 
no smoking of tobacco in any form within the confines of 
the lodge room during the time the Lodge is at labour. 
Let's say it humbly — as far as we know, there has never 
been a suggestion that there might be a necessity in this 
country for a ruling like that. It simply isn't done. 

The Grand Master issued a very precise ruling regarding 
the use and the care of Sermons and Keys. These two 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 17 

words are not in our Masonic vocabulary but they seem to 
concern the ritual. 

A remarkably interesting and inspiring' address was 
delivered by the Grand Orator, M.W. Bro. Angus G. Bethune. 
He urged that Masons examine the American political scene 
and the American educational system, not as partisans but 
as citizens and he emphasized the fact that participation by 
Masons in these fields is urgently needed. 

Fifty-one "Certificates of Proficiency" were issued on 
the recommendation of District Deputy Grand Masters and 
thirty-nine fifty-year certificates and lapel buttons were 
awarded to brethren who had completed a half century as 
Masons. Twenty of the twenty-three living Past Grand 
Masters responded to tihe roll call. 

"Most Lodges in Idaho will admit that their average 
attendance is less than ten per cent of their membership. 
Even nine per cent is good. That is over the national average. 
But what do we, as Lodges or as individuals, do for the 
ninety per cent who do not attend Lodge?" Here is a 
statement that "rings a bell" in Ontario. The answer in 
Idaho is the publication of a bulletin of news similar to 
ours, but some lodge secretaries do not bother to mail the 
bulletin! Masonic Education is actively promoted with reason- 
able success. There is a Special School Committee whose 
duty is to take all possible means to prevent encroachment 
on the public school system by parochial or denominational 
schools. 

Anyone who reads the Idaho Proceedings will realize 
that Masonry in that State carries on under excellent 
management. 



ILLINOIS— 1959 

120th Annual Meeting — October 9-10. 

Grand Master, 1958-59— M.W. Bro. H. R. Kopfman 
Grand Master, 1959-60— M.W. Bro. P. R. Stephens 

Lodges, 935. Membership, 243,348. Loss, 3,291. 

The Grand Master's Address is a remarkable document, 
evidently the product of a well-ordered mind. He tells of 
some most deplorable situations but he explains immediately 
what he has done to rectify such conditions and how success- 
ful his efforts have been. For example, he shows that the 
increase in the decrease in membership in 1959 has been 
relatively less, though numerically more, than the increase 



18 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

in the decrease of 1958 over 1957. When one can be opti- 
mistic to that extent, nothing could possibly discourage such 
a cheerful leader of men. He suggests consideration of a 
shorter form of opening a Lodge and he reminds his 
hearers, with apparent nostalgia, that there was a time, 
years ago, when officers took pride in learning the ritual 
and giving it impressively, whereas now officers give little 
thought to this requirement. When elected Junior Warden, 
many realize suddenly 'that they have been "placed in an 
executive position with an office boy's knowledge and 
experience". 

The Grand Master says further: "The word 'incentive' 
has been all but deleted from our Masonic vocabulary. There 
is little incentive for the young man to petition a Lodge for 
the degrees; with few petitions there is little incentive for 
the officers to learn the work; and, with the knowledge 
that a Lodge has incompetent officers, there is no incentive 
for the layman to attend lodge." Truly, a melancholy picture 
but there are, in this Grand Jurisdiction, 208 small Lodges, 
located dn small towns, that are "prosperous, well conducted 
under competent and aggressive leadership and a credit to 
Masonry and to their respective commuities." There is the 
other side of the picture! 

Such being some conditions, the Grand Master ordered 
a good many Lodges to appoint committees to initiate 
negotiations for consolidation with stronger Lodges. This 
order so wakened 15 Lodges that they improved their 
positions and the order was rescinded. And 43 consolidations 
took place! The Grand Master took strong action with good 
results. 

He undertook another large and important task and sent 
out a questionnaire to try to ascertain how well the officers- 
had learned the ritual. Many Lodges had elected officers 
who had not even "a nodding acquaintance" with the ritual 
and could neither open nor close a lodge meeting. Few 
Masters could conduct a funeral. As usual, the Grand 
Master took drastic action, sent out a strong but kindly 
letter; forbade advancement of incompetent officers; instruct- 
ed Past Masters to take over in some cases; and, generally, 
cleared up the situation as far as could be done in a short 
time. A strong hand was needed at the helm! 

And now a 4-point program has been adopted. One. 
Create social activity; make lodge meetings more interesting; 
clean up lodge halls, paint and repair temples and spruce 
up temple grounds; clean garments and 1 paraphernalia. Two. 
Raise fees and dues. Three. Create Charity Fund Four. 
Enlarge Home's endowment fund. This seems to be an 
excellent prescription.

Grand Master, 1958-59— M.W. Bro. T. J. Jena 
Grand Master, 1959-60— M.W. Bro. J. C. Humphrey 

Lodges, 546. Membership, 185,117. Loss, 94. 

Among the guests were our Grand Master and our Grand 
Secretary. Deploring the slight loss in membership, the 
Grand Master advised soliciting former members and un- 
affiliated Masons to seek restoration and he suggested 
greater efforts to stem the tide of suspensions for non- 
payment of dues. Active Masonic Education committees, 
using tihe Mentor Plan could, he suggests, be most helpful. 
In two years 1,913 members were suspended N.PJ3. 

The Grand Master and his officers laid the corner-stones 
of two school buildings and dedicated nine new Masonic 
Temples. Twelve Grand Lodges sent representatives 'to a 
Mid- West Conference on Masonic Education, the purpose of 
which was to exchange ideas and methods for advancing 
this very desirable enterprise. The Grand Master deplored 
the appalling number of charges against members of the 
Order; he could not understand why so many Masons suc- 
cumb to temptations and violations of both moral and civil 
laws. The Grand Secretary reported that in tihe past eleven 
years there had been nine cases of embezzlement of lodge 
funds by lodge (Secretaries; the largest amount being $5,400 
of which $5,000 was recovered. A trusted official who held 
several positions in Grand Lodge and in the Indiana Masonic 
Home Foundation misappropriated almost $360,000 which he 
used in his own business. The bonding company paid 
$100,000; the official was expelled from the Craft and is 
serving a term of nine years in prison. What a tangled 
web he wove of deceit, cunning, and forgery! In advance of 
the annual meeting two unauthorized circulars entitled 
"Masonic Information" were mailed to members, attacking 
the Grand Master, the Trustees, and the officers of Grand 
Lodge for their handling of the embezzlement incident. 

The Grand Master quoted, in part: "Don't expect perfect- 
ion in a man just because he is a Mason. Masonry makes 
men better but no human agency can* make them perfect 
The aim of Masonry is to receive none but good 1 .men, keep 
them good, and make them better. Judge the institution, 
not by a few failures, but by the average of its successes." 

Grand Lodge publishes an official organ, The Indiana 
Freemason, which has been doing good work for 36 years. 
A News Letter is mailed monthly to 'the Masters and the 
Secretaries to keep the Lodges informed of the affairs of the 



20 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

Fraternity in general. It is surprising 1 to read that 1,891 
Masons were unable to pay their dues in 1958. 

The Grand Master has urged his brethren to take an 
active interest in the youth of the country. A recommend- 
ation of his, adopted with restrictions, was that a Lodge may 
use lodge funds, upon proper vote, to encourage or sponsor 
youth organizations which are permitted by regulations to 
use the lodge rooms. The restriction is that for this pupose 
funds expended must not exceed 25 per cent of the amount 
contributed in the previous year to the Masonic Home or to 
other recognized charities. 

Indiana's Grand Lodge is one of the great ones, well 
organized, well managed.

Having read the Iowa Grand Lodge Bulletin regularly 
for many years, and having become familiar with the names 
of Brother H. L. Haywood and Brother E. B. Delzell, this 
Reviewer long ago placed Iowa on a pedestal, especially in 
Masonic Education. Reading the Proceedings of the 1959 
Communication confirms and enhances that opinion. 

The Grand Master was disturbed over the loss in mem- 
bership and also over the decline in lodge attendance and 
the reduction in the number of applicants. "A few of our 
Lodges are inactive," he said, "indicating very little interest 
by their attendance, creating a dormant attitude for _ the 
general practice of Masonic influence in their communities." 
"The Iowa Committee on Masonic Education holds an im- 
portant position in Iowa Masonry, and from past activities 
reflects an increase in knowledge of Masonic philosophy 
throughout our Grand Jurisdiction". Masonic Education, he 
suggests, may be the means used to encourage and to as- 
sist smaller, inactive Lodges. 

Strange as it may seem, two Past Grand Lodge officers 
undertook to circularize all the Lodges without asking the 
permission of the Grand Master or the Grand Secretary. 
Though there Is no law against such extraordinary action, 
the customs and ancient usages of 'procedure were grossly 
violated in this instance and the Grand Master was humiliated. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 21 

In the Masonic Library, one of the finest in the world, 
there is a wealth of material which is in constant use. 
During the year 1,050 books and 1,790 clippings were loaned 
and many requests for information were received and 
answered. 

There had been a proposal the year before that a penalty 
should be imposed on any Lodge which was not represented 
at Grand Lodge at two successive communications. This was 
regarded as too drastic and a special committee was appoint- 
ed to make a thorough investigation of the situation. 
Reporting to Grand Lodge, the Committee found that one 
remedy might be a requirement that the Master of each 
Lodge could be expected by the Lodge to attend as part of 
his regular duties. An excuse given by some was that a 
three-day session of Grand Lodge kept a representative away 
too long from his business and another excuse was that 
reports are too long and too dry. (Any excuse will do!) 
If lodge attendance and interest could be increased, attend- 
ance at Grand Lodge would also increase; but, says the 
report, "Lack of attendance at the subordinate lodge level 
is common throughout the United States and prevails in 
every jurisdiction." And so. as always, the basic difficulty 
was found to be in the indifference and indolence of the 
officers of the constituent Lodges. 

As was to be expected in Iowa, the Committee on Masonic 
Education was successfully active during the year and 
rendered excellent service. 



IRELAND— 1959 

Annual Report of the St. John's Day Meeting and the Annual 
Communication of Grand Lodge held in Belfast in October. 

Grand Master — M.W. Bro. Raymond F. Brooke 

Lodges, 1,015. Contribution for Benevolence approx. $58,000. 

This Reviewer is proud and happy to be the Grand 
Representative of the Grand Lodge of Ireland near our own 
Grand. Lode?. When I see' in this Annual Report the name 
of the Grand Master who was so kind and hospitable to 
M.W. Bro. Maher and to me and our wives; and the name 
of the R.W. and R. Hon. Lord Donoughmore who entertained 
us last August so magnificently; also the names of R.W. 
Bro. James O. Harte. Grand Secretary, and of our Grand 
Representative, V.W. Bro. Thomas Jackson, (Whom I met by 
the most curiously providential coincidence of my career) , and 
others, I experience a touch of nostalgia as if I were o^e 
of this fine family and away from the home where they work. 



22 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

In this Report many healt-felt tributes are paid to the 
late R.W. Bro. Frank Lowe who was Deputy Grand Master 
and for whom I had the highest regard, esteem, and affection 
after meeting him nine years ago at the Annual Communic- 
ation. 

There are buoyantly optimistic reports from the 
Provincial Grand Lodges of Antrim, Armagh, North Con- 
naught, South Connaught, Down, Londonderry and Donegal, 
Meath, the Midland Counties, Munster, South Eastern, North 
Munster, Tyrone and Fermanagh, Wicklow and Wexford, 
New Zealand, South Africa Northern, Southern Cape Province, 
Rhodesia, Natal, Western India, and from the Grand Inspect- 
ors of Nothern India and Parkistan, Hong Kong, China, and 
Malaya, Bermuda and Ceylon. What a world-wide influence 
is wielded by this Grand Lodge of Ireland! No complaints, 
no "appendant orders," stress always on benevolence, Masonic 
Education and Masonic Church Services where the collections 
are added to the funds for benevolence! What a happy 
situation! Six new Warrants were issued during the year, 
4 in County Down, one in Western India and one in 
Rhodesia, this last one being named in memory of the late 
R.W. Bro. Frank A. Lowe. 

The Lodges of Instruction were attended by larger 
numbers of enthusiastic brethren than ever before. The 
brethren were encouraged to ask questions and, at every 
meeting, took full advantage of the opportunity. 

The Provincial Grand Master of Londonderry and 
Donegal writes: "The number of candidates coming forword 
has been well maintained and in this connection I wish to 
place on record my appreciation of the splendid work done 
by our Committees of Inspection. The care and vigilance 
with which the brethren of these committees perform 
their duties in the selection of candidates cannot be too 
highly praised nor can the importance of these duties be 
too highly stressed when we realize that Freemasonry to- 
morrow depends on the type of candidate admitted to-day." 

The Provincial Grand Master of Western' India was 
greatly pleased to find that brethren belonging to Lodges 
under the English and Scottish Constitutions are attending 
Trish Lodges, are learning the Irish Ritual, and are accept- 
ing junior offices in Irish Lodges in that country. 

Tn tJbe Masom'c Girls' School therp are 87 resident 
pupils and in the Masonic Boys' School the enrollment is 107. 
These two schools are rendering excellent service as they 
have done for many years. 

There is a fine Grand Lodge Library and Museum, 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 23 

The Declaration of 1938 is re-printed in this Annual 
Report; the aims of Freemasonry are stated in precise 
terms which were agreed upon in 1938 by the Grand Lodges 
of England, Scotland and Ireland; and all these terms 
were confirmed again in 1949. We might reprint that 
Declartion occasionally. 



KANSAS— 1959 

103rd Annual Communication — March 11-12 

Grand Master— M.W. Bro. Earl R. Brown 
Grand Secretary — M.W. Bro. C. S. McGinness 

Lodges, 440. Membership, 100,855. Loss, 418. 

Following the customary opening ceremonies the Grand 
Master addressed Grand Lodge deploring that the line be- 
tween ideologies was so sharply drawn that geographical 
neighbours were widely apart on fundamental beliefs. He 
referred fittingly to the 1,831 Kansas Masons who had laid 
down their working tools during the year. 

The Kansas Masonic Home has been in operation for 
over 20 years and now covers an area of 14 acres. The 
average age of inmates is 81 years and the cost per capita 
is over $1,000.00. The number of patients in the infirmary 
has risen to 141. 

Among his activities several appointments are listed, in- 
cluding a Grand Orator, some five Grand Representatives, 
and a new Grand Secretary to replace M.W. Bro. A. H. 
Strickland who had resigned. The Grand Master visited 
several Conferences and Jurisdictions outside Kansas. He 
presented several 25-year and 50-year emblems on his visits 
in his State. 

During the fear he laid five corner-stones, performed 
several consecrations and dedications, and complimented the 
Masons on the improvement of several premises. 

M.W. Bro. Floyd S. Ecord, P.G.M., Chairman of the Com- 
mittee on Correspondence reviewed the Proceedings of some 
40 Grand Jurisdictions in the United States and three in 
Canada. The Grand Lodge of Canada (in Ontario) was 
omitted- He has sources of information not available 
generally, because he tells us (and it sounds reasonable) tihat 
the United Grand Lodge of England has 6,831 Loderes of 
which number 1,604 are in tile City of London; 4,411 are 
Provincial Lodges, and 816 are District and "Abroad" Lodges. 
No membership figures are given. 



24 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

The Committee on Masonic Education distributes four 
booklets (as we do). These are entitled, "On the Threshold, 
The Entered Apprentice, The Fellowcraft and the Master 
Mason." Since 1956, the Committee has published 20,000 
copies of a booklet entitled "One Hundred Questions about 
Freemasonry." This Committee is also charged with the 
distribution of the "Laws of Masonry." There are six area 
meetings, each attended and addressed by the Grand Master; 
and at each of them, much time was given to public schools. 
Delegates were sent to the Mid- West Conference on Masonic 
Education. 

"Each year more and more brethren qualify for pro- 
ficiency certificates of one kind or another and each year 
seems to find an increase of interest in the District Meetings 
and the attainment of a higher degree of perfection in the 
ritual." After all, this is most important. 

M.W. Bro. A. C. Irby was duly elected and installed as 
Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Kansas for 1959-60.

Grand Master, 1958-59— M.W. Bro. M. 3. Whitton 
Grand Master, 1959-60— M.W. Bro. J. R. Vinson 

Lodges, 470. Membership, 100,411. Gain, 300. 

It is simply irresistable — this commendation from the 
pen of the Fraternal Correspondent, M.W. Bro. Chas. A. 
Keith, — who says of our Grand Lodge, "This is one of the 
worlds really great Grand Jurisdictions, well organized, 
ably officered, and progressive." (How much he has said in 
one short sentence!) A copy of our Proceedings did not 
reach him, for some reason, and he gleaned his impressions 
from our Bulletins. Here is another quotation from M.W. 
Bro. Keith's facile pen. "The overall picture is not too bad 
but the trend is discouraging. Increasing decreases and 
decreasing increases, if continued, will bring catastrophe to 
an institution. We wish we could share the optimism of 
some of our reviewers and others; but we have never learned 
to be happy at the prospect of being in a leaking ship in the 
mid-Pacific; or at having the bases full, with nobody out, 
and the leading hitter of the league coming to bat." (How 
is that for metaphors and similes ? ) Again he says, "Apathy, 
indifference and preference for competing entertainment will 
lead to non-attendance and non-attendance is the natural 
precursor of demits and suspensions." M.W. Bro. Keith is 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 25 

an experienced expert in analyzing the situation and looking 
for remedies. 

The Grand Lodge operates successfully two Homes, one 
for Old Masons and another for Masonic Widows and Orphans. 
These are rendering excellent service — a fine demonstration 
of 'Masonic benevolence at its best. 

The following quotation must surely have been a stern 
warning to disinterested delinquents. "I regret to say that we 
have some Lodges that do not possess enough interest in 
Masonry to hold regular meetings or to conduct the affairs 
of the Lodge." Of course, such Lodges cannot receive 
petitions or confer a degree. The Grand Master recommend- 
ed very properly the elimination of the regulation which 
provides that a Lodge must hold at least one meeting a year 
(What a regulation that was!) and asked for an emendation 
that Lodges must hold stated meetings monthly (perhaps ten 
times a year would be acceptable) under penalty of losing 
their charters. (Let none of us say, "That can't happen 
here.") 

There was another regulation which stated, "The instal- 
lation of its officers is a part of the work of the Lodge and 
should not be open to the general public." Few of us would 
go along with the Grand Master in his opinion "that mem- 
bers of the families and close friends of our brethren could 
be legally invited to witness the installation of the officers 
of Masonic Lodges in Kentucky." 

A business man, held generally in high regard, was 
about to petition one of the Lodges for admission when it 
became known that, as a sideline, he was co-holder of a 
malt beverage license and sometimes served beer to customers. 
The Grand Master ruled that the Lodge would be in error 
in receiving this man's petition! 



LOUISIANA— 1960 

149th Annual Communication — February 8-9 

Grand Master, 1959-60 — M.W. Bro. John F. Hartman 
Grand Master, 1960-61— M.W. Bro. Frank Brown 

Lodges, 272. Membership, 50,982. Gain, 389. 

The Grand Master reported that, though the Fraternity 
in the State is in a healthy and prosperous condition and 
though there had been a slight increase in membership 
more enthusiasm is required, on the part of the member- 
ship, to attract the younger men to seek admission to the 
Order. Television, he suggested, is a great counter-attraction. 



26 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

Committees for the investigation of applicants are not, in 
some instances, performing their duties in a satisfactory 
manner. Lodge attendance had not been good during the 
year but he suggested that the brethren are eager for in- 
struction and enlightenment in the symbolism, landmarks, 
history, allegories, activities, and philosophy of Masonry. 
The educational committee, he said, had been active in the 
performance of its duties and had laid stress on the merits 
of the public school system; but "many of the officers and 
brethren do not realize or appreciate the importance of the 
work of the Grand Lecturers." Grand Lodge operates a 
Masonic cemetery which is a real financial problem. 

In the opinion of the Grand Master, most of the Lodges 
are in profound need of special help and instruction in areas 
other than ritualistic and general Masonic Education is 
badly needed. The Committee on Jurisdiction toyed with the 
idea of establishing a constituent Lodge in Thailand but 
recommended no action at this session, recommending further 
that a study be made with a view to modifying the Con- 
stitution to allow for "the establishment of Lodges in open 
territory outside the State of Louisiana." 

The Board of Directors of the Masonic Educational 
Foundation reported that, in the past 28 years, aid has been 
extended to one hundred students. During the past year, 22 
students were assisted to the extent of $7,560. The Found- 
ation takes pride in the fact that most of these young 
people, who have been helped during the years, are now 
useful, intelligent, industrious, and successful citizens 1 . (This 
is an excellent service.) 

The Committee on Audit recommended study of the 
possibility of publishing a magazine or booklet for the 
information of the brethren and suggested that consideration 
be given to the appointment of a Director of Public Relations 
and Publicity. (This seems to be an innovation — .the first 
we have heard of.) 

Quite properly, the Committee on History emphasizes 
the importance of keeping lodge records and of giving 
attention to the current events taking place every day and 
every month.

Lodges, 208. Membership, 47,964. Gain, 70. 

M.W. Bro. Ralph J. Pollard, one of the pillars of the 
Craft in Maine, says; "Freemasonry, the oldest and largest 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 27 

of all fraternal organizations is certainly in no decline. Its 
membership is now at an all-time high and it still counts 
among its members many of the most distinguished and 
influential men of our day." In reviewing our Proceedings 
his comments include kind commendation of the Reviews 
written by the late M.W. Bro. Nelson C. Hart. The Chair- 
man of our Committee on Masonic Education would be 
interested in a detailed description of the "Pollard Plan." 

Only 186 Lodges were represented at this Communication. 
Although 218 Lodges are reported as "enrolled", ten of 
them are "extinct." One Lodge with a membership of 94 
shows the Largest average attendance for the year, 64; 
while another with a membership of 871 had an average of 
only 63. The Grand Master said, "It is always gratifying 
to report gains in membership but Freemasonry in Maine is 
not necessarily dependent upon large numbers" Many Lodges 
have increased their annual dues to cover increasing costs. 
Attendance at the Grand Lecturer's schools has been excel- 
lent and, as a result, the ritualistic work of the Lodges has 
improved considerably. 

The Grand Master directed that the use of the Pollard 
Plan is definitely required of all Lodges; some Lodges had 
overlooked this requirement. Extensive distribution has 
been given throughout the country to a scholarly address, 
entitled "What should a Mason know about Masonry" by 
M.W. Bro. Pollard. 

The Grand Master heard that lotteries and games of 
chance were being conducted in Masonic buildings or by 
members of the Craft for the purpose of raising money for 
so-called Masonic projects. He immediately reminded his 
brethren that, for more than a century, the Grand Lodge of 
Maine has prohibited such gambling and that this violation 
must cease at once. Every Lodge received a letter to this 
effect. With this prompt and definite action we would all 
agree and tender our congratulations to the Grand Master. 

Requests for dispensations to anticipate lack of quorum 
at annual meetings were, quite properly, refused. There 
were persistent rumours that certain Lodges, when conferring 
degrees, were providing entertainment (?) for the brethren 
at the expense and humiliation of the candidate. These 
Lodges were admonished and were told that "at a time when 
the teachings which characterize Freemasonry are so desper- 
ately needed by a troubled and confused world, we can ill 
afford to relax our efforts in indelibly impressing upon the 
hearts of our brethren the dignity and high importance of 
these truths." The Grand Lecturer went on to say that 
horse-play and hilarity "debase the dignity of the Order 
and cast a dark shadow over the future." 



28 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

The Committee on Masonic Education has plans for an 
active year and has undertaken "to strive to arrangja 
educational programmes with the expectation of small begin- 
nings and slow growth". Experience has taught many of us 
that slow growth makes for permanence. 



MANITOBA— 1959 

84th Annual Communication — June 1959 

Grand Master, 1958-59— M.W. Bro. W. A. Prugh 
Grand Master, 1959-60— M.W. Bro. W. D. G. Runions 

Lodges, 119. Membership, 16,346. Gain, 105. 

A situation which causes a great deal of concern almost 
everywhere was mentioned in the Report of the Board of 
General Purposes in this way, "General discussion centred 
on the lack of knowledge apparent among the membership 
regarding the affairs of Grand Lodge." The Grand Secretary 
called attention to the considerable cost of printing the 
Fraternal Reviews even though they had been drastically 
reduced in size. 

The Committee on Masonic Education outlined a plan to 
encourage Masters to make full use of the Mentor Plan; to 
have papers prepared by brethren; to enable the Director 
of Masonic Education to come into personal contact with 
the Lodges; and to encourage Masters to give their mem- 
bers information, at lodge meetings, of the various functions 
and operations of Grand Lodge and of Masonry in Manitoba. 

A telegram was sent by the Grand Secretary, offering 
financial assistance to the officers and members of Laurel 
Lodge No. 70 in the Springhill Mines disaster. The reply 
indicated that no assistance was required at the moment. 

In one meeting of the Board, there was a good deal of 
discussion regarding the desirabilitv, perhaps the necessity, 
of negotiating for the removal of the word "Masonic" from 
the sign outside the Chinese Lodere Hall and from the 
proposed name, "Masonic Garden", in the Evergreen Mem- 
orial Gardens at Portage la Prairie. 

The Masonic Relief Association of the United States and 
Canada was interested to know how Manitoba could operate 
without a Board of Relief: an outline was sent showing 
Manitoba's procedure in handling Benevolence. 

During 1958 the net gain in membership of the Lodges 
in Winnipeg was 108 whereas the Lodges outside the city 
had a net decrease of 3. There are 39 Lodges that charge 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 29 

$10.00 animal dues; 29 charge $12.00; 3 charge $6.00; and 
the amount varies from that low point to $20.00 in one case. 

The Committee on External Relations reported, in part, 
as follows. "On investigating the circumstances your Com- 
ittee is of the opinion that the Grand Lodge of Mississippi 
acted prematurely and under misapprehension of the facts." 

Rarely could one read a more interesting historical story 
than that presented by our friend, the Grand Historian, M.W. 
Bro. Wm. Douglas. Our neighbouring Grand Lodge is to be 
congratulated on its excellent standing. 



MARYLAND— 1959 

Semi-Annual Communication — May 19 

173rd Annual Communication — November 17 - 18 

Grand Master— M.W. Bro. A. W. Reed 

Lodges, 128. Membership, 48,152. Gain, 199. 

Between the Grand Lodge of Maryland and our Grand 
Lodge the most cordial fraternal relations have existed for 
many years; inter- visiting has been constant. Our Com- 
munications would not seem right without the presence of 
R.W. Bro. Claud Shaffer who will still visit us, we hope, 
as Grand Secretary Emeritus. Last November our Grand 
Master was a guest at Maryland and delivered a brief but 
impressive address. Our Grand Secretary, the best-known 
Canadian Mason in North America, was, on this occasion, as 
always, our ambassador of goodwill who fraternized 1 most 
acceptably with all. 

First of all, one notices, in reading the Proceedings, 
that the Committee on Ritualistic Work consists of an English 
language section and a German language section ; and there is 
a Committee to examine the Masters of the Lodges in Masonic 
Law. It warms one's heart to read that the Masonic Homes 
are located at Bonnie Blink — a good name! Some Scot must 
have named it. 

The increase in membership was slightly lower in the 
first half of 1959 than it was in 1958. The Grand Master 
was concerned about the dwindling of applicants in the city 
Lodges which were suffering for the want of work though 
the county Lodges were doing reasonably well. A good deal 
of attention was given to the Blood Donor Service. 

The Grand Lecturer conducts a Summer School which is 
growing "larger and better and better." This seems to be 
an admirable system of instruction. 



30 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

Here is something unusual. The Grand Master described 
this unusual event in this way. "Saturday, October 24th, the 
Masons of Maryland gathered together at Bonnie Blink for 
our annual Corn Husking. The loyalty, courage, and truly 
Masonic spirit were demonstrated by their attendance, 5,000 
strong, in spite of the inclemency of the weather. They came 
to show that the Masons of Maryland act as well as talk 
good Masonry." We congratulate our friend, Past Grand 
Master Harry L. Huether, initiator of this programme, on 
his recovery from a severe illness. 

Lectures are given in the Museum which attracts many 
visitors and there is a Committee on Masonic History. 

Masonry in Maryland is fortunate in the buoyant spirit 
and the optimism of its leaders.

Grand Secretary — R.W. Bro. Earl W. Taylor 

Lodges, 332 (2 U.D.) Membership, 134,200. Gain, 1,213. 

There are fifteen additional "foreign" Lodges, several 
of which are classed as Canal Zone and Isthmian Lodges. 
The Proceedings begin with reports on four Special Oom- 
muications held in the Canal Zone. Quarterly Communic- 
ations are scheduled for March, June, September and Dec- 
ember and a Stated Communication on December 29. The 
latter was attended by M.W. Bro. Martyn and R.W. Bro. 
Dixon of Canada. 

Among the Special Communications there were two for 
constituting new Lodges, one to celebrate the One Hundredth 
Anniversary of Henry Price Lodge, one to dedicate a 
Masonic Temple, and one to celebrate the 225th anniversary 
of Saint John's Lodge in Boston. Brief histories of these 
Lodges and of others similarly recognized are in the Pro- 
ceedings. 

At each quarterly, reports were submitted on many 
brethren who had jojined the Celestial Lodge Above. These 
included the late M.W. Bro. Melvin Maynard Johnson, well- 
known at and a frequent visitor to many Canadian Masonic 
Bodies. 

At the June Quarterly the Committee on Foreign Relat- 
ions, under the chairmanship of M.W. Bro. Thomas S. Roy, 
recommended recognition of the Grand Lodge of Japan and 
of the Dominican Republic. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 31 

There is a comprehensive report on Masonic Relief for 
the year ended August 31st, 1958. Grand Lodge expended 
$7,976.76 and Constituent Lodges $87,140.36, thus extending 
assistance to 1,228 individuals and 447 families. This was 
in addition to the support coming from and through the 
Masonic Home. The per capita cost for the year was $2,222.08 
in the Home and $4,489.03 for those requiring hospitalization. 
Total residents in the Home were 102 with an average age 
of 84 years, 1 month. At 'the September Communication a 
budget of $781,353. in receipts' and $778,584. in expendi- 
tures was approved. 

At the December meeting the Director of Education re- 
ported a successful year of Instruction, the total attendance 
being 34,583. 

M.W. Bro. Andrew G. Jenkins was installed as Grand 
Master for another term. In Massachusetts the Grand 
Masters usually serve for three years. 

Among the guests who brought greetings were M.W. Bro. 
Harry L. Martyn of Canada, and R.W. Bro. (Dr.) Richard 
A. Kern, P.G.M. of Pennsylvania. He suggested that as a 
title for his remarks it might be proper to name them "Role 
of Freemasonry and the Responsibilities of Freemasons in 
a Changing World." He closed his address with these words. 

"Let us meet the challenge of our times as Rupert 
Brooks did his when he sang 'Now God be thanked who) 
matched us with His hour.' "

Grand Master, 1959-60^M.W. Bro. J. R. McGrath 

Lodges, 9. Membership, 649. Gain, 15. 

This Grand Lodge has a long history and has not always 
borne the same name, which accounts for the unusual number- 
ing of this Communication. Since 1911, there has been 
harmony under the Ancient Landmarks of the Craft, follow- 
ing, in general, the laws and customs of the Grand Lodges 
of the United States. It is now recognized by England, 
Scotland, Ireland, most of the Canadian Grand Lodges, and 
all those of the United' States. English is the official 
language. "While sojourning in Mexico, visitors from Grand 
Lodges of the United States and the British Commonwealth of 



32 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

Nations will find Masonry as they know it, in the con- 
stituent Lodges working under this Grand Jurisdiction." 

During the year the Grand Master was obliged to lift 
the charter of one Lodge because lack of resident member- 
ship precluded the possibility of regular functioning of the 
Lodge. For two years every effort was made to keep the 
Lodge going and, when the final decision was made, ail 
reports and returns were turned in and found to be in 
perfect order. Three Lodges have over one hundred members 
each. A new Lodge is in process of formation. 

A good deal of attention has been paid to Masonic 
Education and plans have been made for intensive work in 
Masonic history and philosophy. In order to avoid further 
confusion it was decided that the Centennial Celebration be 
held in 1965 and that collection of funds for this purpose be 
commenced at once. One change which mystifies the present 
Reviewer is the increase of the per capita tax to $50.00 
(Fifty Pesos Mex. Cy.) per annum. Surely this must be a 
payment by each Lodge, not by each member! 

Freemasons carrying on under the most difficult circum- 
stances, few in numbers, working amid a population which 
does not understand Masonry or its principles, are surely 
entitled to our admiration and respect in large measure. 
Long may they flourish!

The Grand Lodge of Michigan is our neighbour and our 
elder brother which, as our Grand Master of a year ago, 
M.W. Bro. H. L. Martyn, reminded his audience, came to our 
assistance over a hundred years ago, when we badly needed 
some kindly help. It is a pleasure to see, in the list of 
Grand Lodge Officers, the names of several of the Masonic 
stalwarts we knew in the late thirties. Long may the in- 
timate relationship continue. 

Most interesting it is to read of an incident which 
proved, if proof were needed, that money cannot buy domin- 
ation of the Masonic Order nor of any Grand Lodge. In the 
Masonic Home of which the brethren are justly proud, there 
are almost 290 residents and the Grand Master stated that, 
in his opinion, there was no need for additional construction 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 33 

within the next five or ten years. But a wealthy Foundation 
offered Grand Lodge a gift of $100,000 with a strong "string" 
attached to the effect that, if construction of an addition 
was not begun within two years, the money must be returned 
to the donors. A 32-bed addition was erected and put into 
use but the donors wrote that the gift was conditional on 
an 84-bed addition being built. The Grand Master recom- 
mended and, after much discussion, Grand Lodge agreed that 
the $100,000 be returned to the donors. ("It is not within 
the power of any man or body of men" to veto a decision 
made by a Grand Lodge!) 

The Grand Master was obliged to discipline several 
Lodges by "placing them in darkness" (a new expression to 
us) for a time on account of violations of State and Masonic 
laws regarding gambling, raffles, and bingo. The excuse 
that other organizations flout the laws and are not penal- 
ized was not accepted by the Grand Master. 

Drastic action was taken against roughness in conferring 
the degrees which seems to be increasingly prevalent in 
some Lodges. "The officers and members of any Lodge who 
take part in, or even condone, the improper portrayal of the 
beautiful drama which is so much a part of our fraternal 
life, should take a fresh look at their assumed obligations", 
said the Grand Master. 

An amendment to the Code prohibits a member or a 
Lodge from communicating directly with a Lodge or a 
Grand Lodge of any other Jurisdiction except through the 
Grand Secretary. (That sounds perfectly reasonable.) 

The Masonic Service and Education Committee reported 
that the Speakers' Bureau had fulfilled all requests. Though 
the Committee realizes that much is yet to be done, it is 
pressing forwai'd towards its mission which is "that of 
getting Masonic information into the heads of the interested 
brother who sits on the sidelines." 

The Eastern Star provided and endowed a beauty parlour 
for the Masonic Home, the average age of the residents being 
79 years. 

The first volume of "The History of Freemasonry in 
Michigan" is ready for the printer.

and the other to dedicate the Minnesota Masonic Memorial 
Cancer Hospital at the University of Minnesota in Minne- 
apolis. This Hospital for cancer patients was- presented, 
through the University, to the service of all in need regard- 
less of race, creed, or colour, by the Grand Lodge of Min- 
nesota. Approximately a million dollars was 1 raised for the 
establishment of this Hospital. Benevolence is a most 
important project of this Grand Lodge. 

The Grand Master pointed out that Grand Lodge is 
sound financially and its funds 1 are conservatively yet profit- 
ably invested. The largest number of requests by Lodges, 
'he said, is for authority to increase fees and dues. The 
Masonic Home is well supported. 

The Grand Master also said, "In view of population 
trends and our own membership trend I leave you to judge 
the effectiveness of your life and mine, of your Lodge and 
mine, in influencing the worthy to seek our portals." He 
went on to say that the fundamental principles on whichi 
his country was founded are: freedom of thought and speech, 
free public schools, and complete separation of Church and 
State. He recommended, and this was approved, that build- 
ings dedicated to Freemasonry be used, when desirable, by 
other organizations. 

The Committee on Masonic Education had not been 
active "to any extent" other than to participate in the Mid- 
West Conference. "However, much thought and consider- 
ation have been given to a future effective forceful pro- 
gramme." 

The strongest possible resolution was adopted, providing- 
that any Mason shall be subject to Masonic discipline if he 
uses the words, "Mason", "Masonic" or "Freemason" or 
any Masonic emblem, insignia, jewel or pin, when seeking 
public office, advertising his business, etc. etc. 

The Grand Lodge of Minnesota is carefully managed and 
well operated.

In this Grand Lodge there is a law that a lodge hall

three constituent Lodges qualified under this arrangement. 
The Grand Lecturer conducted two schools of instruction 
which were attended by enthusiastic brethren but he saw 
evidence of complacency in some Lodges. 

The Jurisprudence Committee had several cases to deal 
with. One Lodge asked for leniency for a member who had 
been put on probation and fined but the Committee's reply 
was, "Any violation of the law of the land is a Masonic. 
offence". Another question was whether a bootlegger, under 
suspension for N.P.D., could be tried by his Lodge aft}er 
being arrested and convicted. The answer was definitely in 
the affirmative. A third query was whether a lawyer repre- 
senting a Mason under a Masonic charge could be admitted 
to the Lodge if he, the lawyer, is not a member of the Craft; 
the answer was in the negative. 

The Grand Treasurer reported total securities of well 
over a million dollars. The Fraternal Correspondent quotes 
a ruling made in 1957 which has "drawn fire all over the 
nation". This is it, "It is the prerogative of every Master 
Mason in good standing to display the Masonic emblem on 
either his person or property." His comment it that this 
goes beyond the limits of good taste and we heartily agree; 
definitely, the emblem should not be used to attract business. 
"Many Grand Lodges are disturbed", he says, "by the ever- 
increasing number of clubs and organizations basing their 
membership upon Masonic connections which seek permission 
to operate within the jurisdiction of Grand Lodge. Most 
Grand Masters are frank to say that the Masonic tree is 
fact becoming top-heavy with such groups and are urging 
their members to turn their energies more to blue lodge work 
rather than these divergent groups." Another significant 
statement in this report is, "The problem of education of 
newly raised Master Masons continues to plague the leaders 
of the Craft everywhere." 

The Fraternal Correspondent recommends terminating 
relations with the Grand Lodge of Nova Scotia because it 
has "agreed to allow the subordinate Lodges to accept 
applications for membership from the infringing Prince 
Hall group." He also recommends withdrawal of recognition 
from the Grand Lodge of Syria and Lebanon which has 
women's lodges as well as men's' lodges and encourages inter- 
visitation. 

A total of $30,216 was paid to beneficiaries during the 
year, the share paid by the local Lodges being $14,053. 
This is, of course, only one phase of the benevolence of Grand 
Lodge, there being a well-managed Masonic Home in which 
are 22 boys and 21 girls, an increase of 14 over the previous 
year and an educational fund for maintaining college 
students of whom eight are being assisted to the extent 



36 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

of $2,708. A committee is investigating the possibility of 
giving scholarships to sons and daughters of Masons in 
Junior colleges. 



MISSOURI— 1959 

138th Annual Communication — September 29-30 

Grand Master, 1958-59 — M.W. Bro. R. L. Aronson 
Grand Master, 1959-60— M.W. Bro. H. 0. Gravel 

Lodges, 593. Membership, 124,068. Loss, 205. 

In his Address, the Grand Master said, "It is my sincere 
feeling that the spirit and the condition of Freemasonry in 
Missouri are good. Time enough, we again show* a small 
reduction in our total membership, approximately the same 
as the nrsceding year's loss. . . . Despite the fact that in 
some other States losses are much larger, we must not be 
complacent about our reduction in membership." Steps were 
being taken, he said, "to counteract the conditions which seem 
to be responsible for these losses." 

He deplored the unfortunate conflict between brethren 
from the rural areas of the State and those of the large 
city Lodges which, he found, "parallels certain conflict which 
exists in the political life of this State between the cities 
and the country." He reminded all "that we are bound by 
obligation to constitute one brotherhood." . . . "We need all 
in order to stay strong." 

Grand Lodge laid, with impressive ceremony, fifteen 
corner-stones, 10 schools, a church, a Masonic Temple, an 
historical marker, a federal building, and a nursing home. 
Travelling in all, about 31.000 miles, the Grand Master made 
a remarkable number of visitations. 

Grand Lodge publishes an official quarterly magazine, 
"The Freemason" which the Committee on Masonic Education 
uses as its most useful medium for communication. Though 
any brother may have this magazine sent to him, without 
cost, if he asks for it, the subscription list has never exceeded 
ten per cent of the membership. The Committee on Masonic 
Education is giving serious consideration to other aspects 
of the work. 

"Perhaps the most regrettable matter which developed 
during- the vear was the effort on the part of the Grand 
Lecturer to develop a fixed ritual for balloting. To my mind 
this was a gross waste of time, neither necessary or wise," 
said the Grand Master. However, the Committee on Ritual 
proposed to ask all Lodges for opinions on this. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 37 

Candidates' booklets are not in great demand, there 
being few requests for them. Attendance of officers at the 
schools of instruction is not by any means what it should be. 

M.W. Bro. R. V. Denslow, who has visited our Grand 
Lodge occasionally has included "The History of the Grand 
Lodge of Canada in the Province of Ontario" in his list of 
recommended books. 

The historical event of the year is thus described. "The 
only time in the history of Freemasonry that a president or 
ex-president of the United States ever received a token for 
fifty-year .membership was on May 18th, 1969, in the 
Ivanhoe Masonic Temple in Kansas City, Mo., when Bro. 
Harrv S. Truman, ex-president and Past Grand Master of 
our Grand Lod°-e was presented with the fifty-year button by 
Grand Master R. L. Aronson." 



NEBRASKA— 1959

Grand Master, 1959-60— M.W. Bro. J. C. Tye 

Lodges, 276. Membership, 46,213. Loss, 69. 

In his Address the Grand Master commended highly the 
services of the Committee on Masonic Education and suggest- 
ed that his successor might have a series of meeting's with 
that Committee to discuss plans for the teaching of history, 
charity, tradition, research, and the good moral teachings of 
Freemasonry. He had attended five of the six area meetings 
held during his year and only a March blizzard prevented 
his visit to the sixth meeting. 

The Grand Master ruled that a petitioner was not 
eliHbV for admission because he was emr/loyed in a brewery 
and that a Fellow-Craft must be expelled because he had 
taken a position with a wholesale liquor distributor. To us 
this seems inconsistent if some or all of the members of 
the Lodge are occasional consumers of the product of the 
brewery. One of the largest Masonic functions during our 
year was the occasion of the initiation of the respected 
manager of one of our largest hotels. If an honest man 
works in a brewery and if the brewery is a lawful industry, 
how dees his status differ from that of another honest man 
who works, for examole, in a shoe factorv? However, we do 
net criticize Nebraska — other laws, other customs! 

There is strong recommendation in the Address for the 
Grand Custodian and his assistants who are making good 



38 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

progress, tihe Grand Master says, in improving tihe 
quality of the work throughout the entire state. He con- 
cludes by stating that, in his opinion, Freemasonry in 
Nebraska is in a healthy condition. 

One Lodge has been cited to appear and show cause 
why its charter should not be forfeited. Another Lodge, 
after due and proper notices to all its 29 members, voted 
unanimously to surrender its charter. 743 brethren are 
wearing fifty-year buttons and 31 senior brethren were 
awarded the Jordan Medal during the year. One cannot 
be quite sure what is meant by this sentence. "Thirty-one 
senior brethren who were proud to wear the likeness of our 
first Grand Master have laid down their working tools for 
the final time." 

Schools of Instruction are popular and are well attended. 
Individual brethren and Lodges can qualify for certification 
by the Grand Custodian and 138 Lodges are now certified. 
This is most commendable. The Grand Custodian says 
"Some Lodges which do 'poor to terrible' work have been 
that way for a long time. There is no desire to change for 
the better." On the other hand, the great majority are doing 
well. 

Obviously, the management of the Grand Lodge of 
Nebraska is in the hands of competent officers. 



NEVADA— 1959 

95th Annual Communication — June 11-12 

Grand Master — M.W. Bro. F. Yale Williams 

Lodges, 42. Membership, 5,787. Gain, 108. 

The Eighty-sixth Grand Master presided over the Ninety- 
fifth Annual Communication and submitted his Annual 
Report in which he told of laying, with full ceremony eleven 
corner-stones and installing the officers of eleven Lodges, — 
customs no longer observed in our country. He made many 
visits in his own jurisdiction and elsewhere and personally 
presented a good many fifty-year buttons. On his proclam- 
ation Public School Week was proclaimed in October and all 
Lodges were instructed "to observe the same with a suitable 
program." On the ground that "no change can be made 
without change of by-laws" he refused two requests from 
Lodges that asked to be allowed to postpone a regulair 
meeting at Christmas time. 

A special committee recommended the adoption of a 
system of "field deputies" or "inspectors" which would seem 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 39 

to be our established arrangement for District Deputy Grand 
Masters. Provision is made for the appointment, in every 
Lodge, of a "Master of Instruction" and a deputy Master 
whose duties include the preparation of lodge officers for 
advancement. 

The Grand Orator, Brother George T. Myers, delivered 
a very fine address on Brotherhood, one which must have 
made a lasting impression on those who listened to it. Two 
impressive services were held during the session, a Memorial 
Service and the Flag Service. There seems to be a rather 
terrifying multiplicity of societies (for men, women, boys 
and girls) all good, no doubt, but claiming not only to be 
masonic in character and in outlook but seeking, in many 
cases, affiliation with Grand Lodge. This is a situation we 
have avoided in Canada, so far, and let us hope we may not 
encounter these problems in the future. 

Freemasonry is flourishing in Nevada with a corps of 
active officers headed by Grand Master M.W. Bro. Royal 
D. Crowell who handles the gavel for 1959-60.

Grand Master' — M.W. Bro. Dr. Donald A. Somerville 

Lodges, 48. Membership, 8,952. Gain, 38. 

What a pleasure it is to read the Proceedings of this 
sturdy, closely-knit Grand Lodge, which is carrying on so 
magnificently under rather difficult circumstances. To this 
Reviewer there came a certain type of nostalgia as he saw 
in the list of officers the names of three of his personal 
friends, the Grand Secretary, the Grand Historian, and the 
Chairman of the Ritual Committee. It was fun to read 
(though it was no joke at the time), of the Grand Master's 
visit to Manianook Lodge, with thirty -five members of Grand 
Lodge, who suffered temporary digestive upsets on the 
stormy passage from Grand Manan Island after the meeting. 

Though membership figures are interesting, too much 
weight should not be given them because it is quality that 
counts and it i9 interesting to note that this year's increase 
is exactly the same as last year's decrease. Unfortunately, 
the casualty list was high — 140 passed to the Grand Lodge 
Above during the year. 

Our Grand Representative is R.W. Bro. Albert C. 
Lemmon, the genial and efficient Grand Secretary, who has 
attended our Annual Communications regularly even before 
he assumed his present office. 



40 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

On the evening preceding the opening of Grand Lodge 
a. preparatory meeting was held when there was animated 
discussion on such topics as examination of visitors, ballotting, 
reception of the visiting Grand Master and other high- 
ranking official®, Masonic dress, the funeral service, and 
several ritualistic topics. This seems an excellent means of 
imparting practical Masonic Education. 

Grand Lodge opened with a most impressive Service of 
Thanksgiving which included an inspiring address by the 
Grand Chaplain. Then followed the Grand Master's eloquent 
Address in which he referred to the forthcoming visit of 
Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip; to the 
loss sustained in the passing of so many brethren; to his 
appointments and his visitations; to anniversaries; and to 
the All-Canada and the Washington Conferences. He then 
concluded this general survey with some of the finest 
of admonitions regarding the attitude of Freemasonry and 
of Freemasons to Religion. 

There are seven District Deputy Grand Masters whose 
concise yet comprehensive reports make interesting reading. 
Grand Lodge distributes an excellent booklet entitled "More 
Light on Freemasonry." 

Having presided gracefully over the Annual Communic- 
ation of Grand Lodge for the second time and having faith- 
fully completed his two-year term of office, M.W. Bro. 
Somerville handed over the gavel to his dulv elected and 
regularly installed successor, M.W. Bro. Dr. F. C. Thomas 
who is now Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of New 
Brunswick.

Lodges, 18. Membership, 2,331. Gain, 37. 

The strong, vigorous, and active District Grand Master, 
who has held that position since 1942, spares neither time 
nor energy in the performance of the duties of his high 
and important office. His Annual Report is really a diary, 
a synopsis of his labours during the year. Prior to 1870 
Newfoundland was included in the Masonic Province of 
Nova Scotia and now there are two District Grand Lodges 
(English and Scottish). The Grand Master reminds us that, 
"in mainland Canada", the United Grand Lodge of England 
still has two Lodges in Montreal, St. Paul's and St. George's, 
as well as Royal Standard Lodge in Halifax. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 41 

During the summer months, May to October, there are 
conferences in different parts of the Province, usually in the 
home of a Mason, and these are attended by representatives 
of three or four Lodges. Social events are frequent during 
the summer and are well attended. Indeed, interest seems 
to be particularly well maintained and inter-visitations are 
popular. By the way, the numbers of the Lodges are strict^ 
ly different from those in other Provinces; for example, 
there are Avalon, No. 776; Botwood, No. 3542; St. George's, 
No. 6739; Gander, No. 6860, these being of course number? 
in the Grand Lodge of England. 

The District Grand Master cabled England regarding 
the wearing of Masonic regalia at the Church Service of 
June 29th under the auspices of the Royal Arch Chapter 
of Noval Scotia but the Grand Secretary's reply was that 
this could not be approved. After nearly a year's correspond- 
ence with England approval was not obtained for the practice 
of remunerating lodge secretaries. Accordingly, all Lodges 
were notified that the only remuneration a lodge secretary 
can be given is remission of his annual dues. However, in- 
cumbants of that office at the. time the ruling was passed 
may continue to receive remuneration but, with the appoint- 
ment of new secretaries, the practice must cease. Yet there 
are several large Lodges such as Avalon, (349); St. John's, 
(243); and Corner Brook, (180). In the city of St. John's 
there are four English Lodges and two Scottish Lodges. 

Two delegates attended the Sixth Biennial Conference 
of Canadian Grand and District Grand Lodges in Montreal 
and brought back an interesting account of the proceedings. 
This gathering provided a significant link with Freemasonry 
in other Provinces. The fact that amicable relations exist, 
and will eontinue as always, between the two District 
Grand Lodges in Newfoundland is indicated by the fact that 
a deputation from the District Grand Lodge of Scotland 
was warmly welcomed during the Communication. 

Most gratifying it is to observe the great emphasis 
placed in this District Grand Lodge on the practice of 
benevolence. It is a pleasure to read the details of the 
contributions to the fund.

Lodges, 81. Membership, 17,173. Gain, 12. 

- The Grand Master finds an alarming situation in the 
fact that "the Lodges are not receiving applications from 



42 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

as many of their potential candidates as they should and 
that too large a proportion of members are fifty years of 
age and older. Though a gain of twelve is gratifying when 
there was a loss of two the year before, it is not good 
enough. He wonders 1 when the men of to-day lost the in- 
itiative of our forefathers and why they have fallen into "a 
shell of complacency." 

Several Lodges asked, during the year, for authority 
to increase the annual dues and the Grand Master undertook 
to recommend that the per capita tax be $2.00 instead of 
$1.50. This was approved by Grand Lodge. "Even with this 
increase," said the Grand Master, "our per capita tax will 
be among the smaLlest in the country. It has been many 
years since we have had an increase in this item and, in 
that time, prices have doubled." 

Stressing the need for benevolence, the Grand Master 
said that he has been "greatly disappointed at the apparent 
lack of the appreciation, among our members, of the neces- 
sity for Masonic charity — one of our oldest traditions." He 
was most insistent regarding the necessity for promoting 
and expanding the arrangements for Masonic Education. 
The committee has distributed a bulletin of information and 
several brochures and has placed in public libraries several 
copies of "The Builders." Information is being gathered for 
a book to be entitled "Masonic Procedure, Courtesy, and 
Protocol." 

This Grand Lodge looks with favour upon semi-public 
installations of lodge officers and has approved an amend- 
ment to the Constitution which makes a dispensation un- 
necessary for such ceremonies. 

The Grand Secretary, M.W. Bro. Harold 0. Cody, who 
has visited our Grand Lodge and whom this Reviewer 
regards as a personal friend, has written a remarkably fine 
Foreword to the Report of the Fraternal Correspondence 
Committee, of which he is Chairman. He gives us 158 pages 
of the most interesting Reviews covering the activities of 72 
Grand Lodges, including 9 Canadian. He writes, "One of the 
most disturbing matters has arisen between two Grand 
Jurisdictions on the North American Continent which does 
not help our present-day unrest but adds more fuel to the 
fire." Of course he refers to the action of Mississippi to- 
ward Nova Scotia.

Lodges, 289. Membership, 107,469. Gain, 331. 

During the year there were four Emergent Communic- 
ations for the constituting of new Lodges and four for laying 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 43 

cornerstones of Masonic buildings. Each Lodge pays $3.00 
per annum for the Masonic Home and Charity; $1.00 for the 
Grand Lodge; and $1.50 for each Master Mason raised during 
the year. 

The Grand Master had good reason for stating in his 
Address that the year had been a most successful one. He 
listed some topics which were discussed at the Annual 
Conference of Grand Masters in Washington, one of these 
being, "Should Freemasonry actively reply to anti-Masonic 
propoganda based on misrepresentation and falsehood?" 
Apparently, most United States Grand Lodges follow 
England, as we do, in ignoring such attacks. 

New Jersey has undertaken to provide a medal in memory 
of Daniel Coxe who was the first Provincial Grand Master 
in. North America from 1730 to 1733. This medal will be 
awarded to Masons who have served with distinction either 
in New Jersey or in other Grand Jurisdictions. 

It has been recommended and approved that Lodges 
which propose to erect new buildings or to hold real property 
or to transfer assets to other organizations must notify 
every member, adopt an appropriate resolution and obtain 
the written consent of the Grand Master. This seems to be 
a wise precaution. 

Masonic Education receives a good deal of attention and 
there is a good Library and a Museum. The Committee on 
Fraternal Relations has read and has written Reviews of 
seventy-five Grand Lodge Proceedings. The hope is ex- 
pressed that the members of Grand Lodge will enjoy this 
record of world-wide Masonic activities. The Committee's 
report goes on to say that many Grand Lodges are taking 
a greater interest in the public schools; that many are con- 
sidering establishment of a desired proficiency in the M.M. 
degree; that many also report less than 15 per cent attend- 
ance at lodge; that one Grand Lodge exempts clergymen, 
fifty-year Masons and mental cases from payment of dues 
and assessments; and that "death and non-payment of dues 
have sent ten Grand Lodges into the red, two by a very 
small margin and one up into the thousands." 

There was a proposal that Grand Lodge do not require 
the annual per capita assessment from any Mason who is 75 
vears of age or older and has oaid dues for 25 years con- 
secutively. This is to be debated at the forthcoming Annual 
Communication. 

The Grand Master was most active in visitations, almost 
incredibly active. It has been a pleasure to read New 
Jersey's Proceedings.

Grand Master, 1958-59— M.W. Bro. R. G. Bird 
Grand Master, 1959-60— M.W. Bro. S. Dennis 

Lodges, 62. Membership, 14,658. Gain, 426. 

The Grand Master's Address is filled with information 
regarding his own activities and those of officials and com- 
mittees. His Board of Directors was consulted regarding 
financing and re-modelling of lodge premises and approved 
a loan of $8,000. to one of the Lodges. He granted four 
dispensations for meetings to be held away from the regular 
lodge room and five dispensations to initiate and pass more 
than five candidates in one day. He authorized renting a 
lodge room for one meeting to the Knights of Pythias; de- 
clined a request that a study club, formed by a group of 
Masons, be sponsored by a Lodge; and in reply to a query, 
whether fifty-year pins could be presented to brethren who 
had continuous membership of 29 years to 55 years in other 
jurisdictions, stated that the Lodge might honour its mem- 
bers in any "way it wished to do so. But he refused, quite 
properly and naturally, to authorize use of a lodge room 
for fund-raising meetings. 

Among nine recommendations made in the Address, some 
of which were approved and some were not, was one to the 
effect that "the issuance of life memberships be discontinued 
entirely." This was not to be retroactive and was not to 
interfere with purchased life memberships — but this recom- 
mendation was not approved. 

The Grand Lecturer reported that interest in the ritual 
was, in general, very good but the lack of enthusiasm in a 
few Lodges was rather disappointing. The highest fee (for 
degrees) charged is $152.00; the lowest less than $55.00. 
Annual dues range from $6.00 to $20.90. 

The Committee on Masonic Educational Service made an 
exhaustive study of suitable material and proposed to issue 
a bulletin outlining suggestions for lodee programs with 
listing of films and special lodge talks. There is a travelling 
library and a revolving student loan fund. 

There are two serious problems puzzling New Mexico and 
many other Grand Lodges these days. The first is that 
Masonry is not attracting as many citizens in the professions 
and in public life as was the case years ago. What is the 
answer? The second is poor attendance. In the Report on 
Foreign Correspondence one Past Grand Master aptly says, 
"If officers com/plain of poor attendance, let them look in a 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 45 

mirror and see the cause." How true! There are some 
interesting comments on the failure of Past Masters to attend 
and to assume the responsibility that is theirs; that is, to 
encourage and not to criticise. 



NEW SOUTH WALES— 1959 

71st Annual Report of two Special and four Quarterly 
Communications — 1958 and 1959 

Grand Master— M.W. Rro. T. L. Warren 

Lodges, 879. Membership, 135,126. Gain, 65. 

The Foreign Correspondence Report for 1958 is one 
of the most interesting we have read. It breathes an 
atmosphere of amity, goodwill, peace and harmony through- 
out the Masonic world. Our Proceedings are reviewed in a 
most kindly manner and at length; and we do hope that 
the Foreign Correspondent will feel that this Review, though 
more brief than his, reciprocates his kindness. In his com- 
ment on England, he gives us figures which we had not 
found elsewhere and which he quotes from England's Grand 
Master, "We number now some 7,000 Lodges; our brethren 
number some 600,000; 500,000 of these are in England and 
Wales and some 100,000 in our Lodges overseas." 

The Grand Master was re-elected for the fourth, con- 
secutive session. In his Addresses he told of the consecration 
of 4 new country Lodges and 7 metropolitan Lodges but 
deplored the falling off of attendance at regular meetings. 
He appealed to the Masters to make their meetings as 
attractive as possible by "tyling on time," and by doing 
good work in an expeditious manner so that the brethren 
may have an opportunity of fraternizing "in the South". (The 
vocabulary is different from ours but the idea is the same — 
fewer and shorter speeches?) The Grand Director of Cere- 
monies called on the representatives of Sister Grand Lodges 
"to be upstanding," (an expression inherited from the old 
land). The Grand Inspector of Workings made a good 
suggestion when he said, "Concern is still expressed at the 
late hour brethren remain in the lodge room, leaving little 
time to fraternize at the festive board; prompt tyling at 
the set time, with work in the lodge room finalized by 9.30 
p.m. would be a considerable help and possibly reflect in 
better attendance." (Why not?) 

The same official stated, in his second report, "It is 
pleasing to record the high standard of work reported in 
many Lodges and to note the dignity and decorum observed 
by the brethren at the festive board where many happy 
evenings have been enjoyed by all." 



46 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

There was a good deal of discussion over a proposal 
made by the Grand Master to establish "The Masonic 
Temple's Fund" for a new Grand Temple to be "a Memorial 
to perpetuate the memory of brethren who made the supreme 
sacrifice through war service on behalf of the British 
Commonwealth of Nations." He proposed also to loan 
money from this fund, at a low rate of interest to enable 
Lodges to instal air-conditioning and to make necessary 
repairs. By a large majority the decision was made that, 
from January 1st, 1960, each Lodge would contribute 20 
shillings a year for each member to build up the fund in 
order that the Temple might be commenced, as the Grand 
Master suggested, in 15 to 17 years, probably sooner. 

In the solution of a problem which, happily, has not 
arisen here where there are no "appendant bodies," a nice 
compromise was effected. The Australian Grand Council of 
the Order of De Molay eliminated from its constitution all 
reference to Freemasonry and, as that was considered to 
have made that Order similar to other youth organizations, 
Freemasons were allowed to take part in it "in their 
capacity as private citizens." 

The Proceedings close with several of the most ap- 
propriate poems it has been our privilege to read. 



NEW ZEALAND — 1959 

70th Annual Communication — November 25 

Grand Master, 1958-60— M.W. Bro. C. H. Taylor 

Lodges, 406. Membership, 45,973. Gain, 593. 

In these Proceedings there are accounts of some of the 
most interesting discussions and many evidences of the 
best of good common sense in dealing with difficulties. The 
foremost topic in New Zealand, as elsewhere, is poor attend- 
ance along with alarmingly numerous resignations. These 
two related problems are sensibly discussed and there are 
some constructive suggestions. One statement that would be 
amusing, if it were not so true, is this: "As for the number 
of members who resigned, one of the great counter-attract- 
tions is indoor bowls. This pastime has become a fever. 
Men are leaving their wives and families because of it. 
Night after night they desert their homes to go and play 
indoor bowls. Once they drift away they do not come hack. 
The Lodges should try to counteract this loss." Another 
speaker said, "where are the Freemasons we knew thirty or 
forty years ago — men who really regarded their Lodge as 
part of their lives?" Seven new Lodges were constituted 
during- the year and two others are in process of establish- 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 47 

merit. There are 13 Districts each presided over by a 
Provincial Grand Master. In the last five years, 5,536 
members resigned — 1,247 of them during the past year. 

This Grand Lodge has commenced construction of a new- 
office building but, as in our own case, completion has been 
greatly delayed. There is a good library and a museum. 
Benevolence receives much attention — there is a Masonic 
Institute and there are a good many Masonic bursaries. 

In the Grand Master's Address there are many signific- 
ant statements. He feels justified in stating: that "the Craft 
is in a healthy condition in New Zealand." Some Lodges are 
too large — a membership of over 200 should require the 
formation of a new Lodge. "There are a few Lodges which 
have a struggle to keep their membership large enough to 
supply even the requisite number of capable officers." The 
ritual work is generally of a reasonably good standard but 
in some cases could be greatly improved. "Some Lodges are 
making little or no effort to contribute the one pound per 
member per year to Grand Lodge benevolence." "In many 
instances the Lodges that make the smallest contributions 
to charity are those that make the biggest claims on the 
charitable funds of Grand Lodge." In some cases, though 
not as many as in previous years, there is too great a con- 
sumption of liquor at the festive board. "Do we spend too 
much time in out refectories in praising one another and 
Baying what wonderful people we all are? Freemasonry is 
a useful institution. It has done and is doing much good in 
■the world. Let us not, however, claim for it virtues greater 
than it really has." "I have never been able to understand 
why all Masonic differences, even those of a serious nature, 
should not be discussed without heat and in the light of 
reason." From the extracts given, readers will realize that 
the Grand Lodge of New Zealand has a wise and a capable 
Grand Master.

Unfortunately the Grand Master was ill and his Address 
was read for him. What a magnificent Report it was! He 
had been one of the most active Grand Masters in the whole 
country and his administration was all that could be desired 



48 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

and more. Our Grand Master of that year, M.W. Bro. 
Harry L. Martyn, received an enthusiastic welcome. Six new 
Lodges were given their charters during the year and all 
Lodges, except one which was three days late, filed returns 
in the specified time; the delinquent was fined $3.00. Seventy- 
eight brethren received 50-year buttons and certificates. 

Advocating adoption by every Lodge of the "lodge 
system of Masonic Education", the Grand Master said: 
■"Every candidate is a stranger to Freemasonry and Free- 
masonry is a stranger to him. It is not merely a Lodge 
that he joins but a fraternity with millions of members 
throughout the world; with a history stretching back over 
many centuries; with an intricate system of laws and a 
large number of purposes, ideals, and obligations; with many 
rights, privileges, and duties; and with the ancient landmarks 

to be preserved When the lodge system of Masonic 

Education is adhered to, not only does the candidate profit, 
but the Lodge is strengthened by having new members who, 
from the beginning, are more likely to, (a) take part in 
its activities; (b) become regular attendants; (c) grasp the 
purposes of the endeavours of the Lodge; (d) come in 
better prepared for work." 



In reply to a question, the Grand Master wrote: "I 
think that applause in connection with any part of the degree 
work is entirely out of place, because we should endeavour 
to create a solemn and serious atmosphere in which the 
degree work may be more effectively impressed upon the 
candidate, and not to create an atmosphere of gaiety or 
levity . . . We do not applaud in church, however much we 
may restrain the desire to do so sometimes." 



Three Lodges requested permission to construct and 
occupy one-storey lodge buildings and this was allowed on 
condition that "the lodge rooms could be properly tyled 
and free from cowans and eavesdroppers." 



A Lodge and its Master received a sharp reprimand, 
-which was duly recorded, for initiating a candidate at the 
same meeting at which he was ballotted for and accepted. 



The Grand Master concluded by strong condemnation of 
carelessness in investigating the moral character of petition- 
ers and of the promotion of ill-prepared officers who were 
ignorant of Masonic Laws.

NORTH DAKOTA— 1959 

70th Annual Communication — June 15-17 

Grand Master, 1958-59 — M.W. Bro. L. C. Mensing 
Grand Master, 1959-60— M.W. Bro. B. G. Gustafson 

Lodges, 120. Membership, 14,109. Loss, 161. 

(Anticipating Statehood, the Grand Lodges of North 
and South Dakota were established in 1889, replacing one 
Grand Lodge. This accounts for their apparent youth.) 

At the opening of Grand Lodge, the flags of the United 
States and of Canada were presented at the altar and the 
assembly sang "My Country Tis of Thee", "God Save the 
Queen"/ and "Two Countries by the Sea". Among Canadian 
guests were M.W. Bro. Arthur D. Cumming, P.G.M. of 
Alberta; M.W. Bro. W. A. Prugh, M.W. Bro. William 
Douglas, M.W. Bro. W. C. McDonald, M.W. Bro. H. H. Gray, 
M.W. Bro. D. Rothstein and R.W. Bro. W. E. Glover of 
Manitoba; and R.W. Bro. Wellington Smith, P.G.S.W. of 
Ontario. The Fifty- Year Masons were asked to take their 
places at the altar and were given a special greeting. 

The Grand Master had made his special concern an 
attempt to get back to the very foundation of Freemasonry 
as it affects the new candidates. He tried to ensure that 
1die new member received everything he is entitled to in 
light, education, and information about the Craft. He attend- 
ed all 23 of the District Meetings. He deplores the loss in 
membership and says, "Masonry is flourishing in some juris- 
dictions and we cannot escape the fact that it must be our 
own fault. Let's all go to work." 

This Grand Lodge operates an excellent Masonic Library 
which has built up a remarkably fine circulation. Perhaps 
this Grand Lodge is unique in having a Masonic Park of its 
own which is to be enclosed by a fence; there is also a 
Masonic Island which is described as an International Land- 
mark for Freemasonry. The Committee on Resolutions re- 
ported that "the joint'installation with the Eastern Star has 
always been one of the social highlights of the winter 
season and has been a great asset to the smaller Lodges of 
the state," Unheard of in our country! 

Masonic Education receives a good deal of attention 
through the efforts of a strong committee. "Some Lodges 
have a fine programme of Masonic Education and Instruct- 
ion but far too many are neglecting this very important 
aspect of Freemasonry." 

There is, as in many Grand Lodges in the United States 
(but fortunately none "in Canada) a Committee on Publi« 



50 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

School Education which reported in part, as follows: "Our 
schools are faced with many problems which must be solved 
if our youth are to receive an education geared to the 
twentieth century. Re-organization, finance, curriculum 
offering, housing, higher education and guidance are only a 
few of the many unsolved problems facing the public schools 
in North Dakota". 

All in all, this Annual Communication was inspiring and 
profitable. 



NOVA SCOTIA— 1959 

94th Annual Communication 1 — June 7-8 

Grand Master, 1958 - 1960— M.W. Bro. C. H. Oolwell 

Lodges, 114. Membership, 14,855. Loss, 5. 

During the year two new Lodges were instituted; two 
were constituted; and two new temples were dedicated. The 
roots of Freemasonry have grown deep in Nova Scotia where 
the first Lodges were established more than two hundred 
years ago, in 1738. We are frequently reminded that the 
Province of Nova Scotia has a flag of its own as no other 
Province has; and the Grand Lodge of Nova Scotia is the 
only one in Canada that maintains a Masonic Home. 

The Grand Master expresses his appreciation to the 
Associate Grand Secretary, M.W. Bro. R. V. Harris, (that 
great pillar of the Craft in Canada) "for his continued 
diligence in all things Masonic". He deplores the large 
number of suspensions for non-payment of dues and suggests 
that some means should be found to keep the brethren in 
good standing. 

On March 19th, 1959, the Grand Secretary of the Grand 
Lodge of Mississippi wrote Nova Scotia, "This is to officially 
notify you that the Grand Lodge of Mississippi severed 
fraternal relations with your Grand Lodge at its Annual 
Communication last month. This action was made necessary 
by your recognition and acceptance of clandestine Masonry 
in your jurisdiction. This information was contained in 
your Grand Secretary's Report for 1957 concerning Prince 
Hall Masonry." 

To this peremptory notification the veteran Associate 
Grand Secretary, former barrister, solicitor, and jurist, 
replied with an unvarnished, straight-forward factual history 
which would convince anyone and has, undoubtedly, convinced 
all interested except those who may be determined to dis- 
believe. Dr. Harris's letter covers five pages of the Pro- 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 51 

ceedings; copies were sent, on request, to Arkansas, Florida, 
Georgia, Oklahoma, Texas and others. Florida's reply seems 
to smm up the situation, the final sentence being this, "After 
a careful perusal of that letter, reciting the history of the 
invasion of Nova Scotia's jurisdiction in 1948 by Prince 
Hall Grand Lodge (coloured) and the continued and finally 
successful efforts to get their withdrawal, we are of the 
opinion that no grounds exist for any disruption of Fraternal 
Relation® with the Grand Lodge of Nova Scotia". 

In Masonic Education operations, a question-and-answer 
period has been tried, with good results. A series of talks 
is to be given, twice a month from October to May, at 
Freemasons' Hall, Halifax, open to all brethren. For these 
talks an interesting series of topics has been arranged. 

The Grand Historian urges every Lodge to obey the 
Constitution and to elect an Historian at once before records 
are lost or forgotten. It is recommended that each Lodge 
place greater stress on making the meetings more interest- 
ing. This Reviewer is proud to be in the list of those who 
wear the Erasmus James Phillips Bronze Medallion. 



OHIO— 1959 

150th Annual Communication — October 16 - 17 

Grand Master, 1958-59— M.W. Bro. C. Hodges 
Grand Master,1959-60 — M.W. Bro. C. K. Cunningham 

Lodges, 670. Membership, 282,793. Gain, 170. 

In the Reviews and in the Foreword, all written by M.W. 
Bro. C. W. Ellenwood, there can be found a mine of good 
common sense as well as suggestions and much interesting 
information. Almost universal, he says, is the downward 
trend in membership in United States Grand Lodges, caused 
by fewer initiations and too many suspensions; but in no case 
has he noted an attitude of panic, though certainly one of 
serious concern, among Grand Masters and other leaders. 
The cure, he suggests, is a revival of zeal on the part of 
leaders from Junior Stewards to Grand Masters. Educational 
programmes will help, he says, but "it's the teacher and not 
the text that really counts in education." Another cure for 
the trends would be the publicity of our "good works," he 
thinks, and he also suggests that dues are too low. He 
pinpoints the number of English Lodges at 6,844 and he 
finds difficulty in reviewing Ireland's Proceedings but we 
must remind him that Irish originality is almost as famous 
as Irsh hospitality! 



52 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

In an inspiring- Address, the Grand Master said, "As we 
continue to analyze some of our conditions, what do we find 
in our Lodges? Are they merely social clubs or are they 
playing their part in the mission of Freemasonry? A few 
continue to drift with inadequate fees and dues. AH too 
many rely on the initiation fee to operate and sponsor their 
programmes for the year. In general, the attendance is low, 
slightly under ten per cent." 

The Committee on Masonic Education prepared a good 
deal of useful and interesting material which has proved 
to be generally acceptable to the Lodges. 

The Grand Master suggests a revision of one section of 
the Code so that it would read, "To indulge in the excessive 
use of intoxicating liquors wherever obtained shall be deemed 
a Masonic offence and subject the Brother so offending to 
charges and expulsion; it shall also be a disqualification for 
initiation or affiliation in any Masonic Lodge." This omits 
former reference to the sale or advertising of liquor. 

He emphasizes another section which reads. "All lotteries, 
games of chance, and raffles of every kind and character, by 
or under the management or supervision of Lodges within 
the Jurisdiction of Grand Lodge, are hereby prohibited." 

To three brethren Grand Lodge awarded seventy-year 
emblems; 810 received during the year fifty-year medals and 
1,351 received twenty-five year emblems.

Previous to the Annual Communication, several Emergent 
Communications were held, the purpose of one of them being 
to constitute a new Lodge in the presence of brethren, their 
families and friends, while the purpose of four of these 
Communications was to lay the corner-stones of school 
buildings. 

The Grand Master issued the following edict: "It shall 
be unlawful for a constituent lodge to print or publish a 
roster of their members or furnish the same foT any person 
or organization without the approval of the Grand Master." 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 53 

(We are glad to note use of the word "constituent" rather 
than the less preferable word "subordinate", so often used.) 
He would like to establish a Home for aged persons, 
in addition to the existing charitable institutions; (This 
would be a Home where aged persons would be permitted to 
pay for their entire keep;) and he hopes also that the per 
capita tax may some time be increased to cover the cost of 
publishing' and distributing "The Oklahoma Mason" so that 
every member would automatically become a subscriber and 
reader. During the year 1,154 members were reported as 
unable to pay their dues. 

The month of November was proclaimed as public 
school week and the members of constituent lodges were 
requested to visit the public schools, the classrooms, the 
faculty, the school board, and various school groups. The 
Grand Master urged active participation in the affairs of the 
public schools. 

In 1954 one dollar had been added to the per capita tax 
to pay off the debt on the Temple; now the debt had been 
completely paid; the mortgage was burned; and the dollar 
was removed from the per capita tax. 

The Committee on Masonic Education employed a part- 
time organizer who is a full-time public school teacher. This 
official has spent much time and care in getting the right 
background and in formulating plans for future operations. 
He is building up a basic bibliography and inviting gifts of 
books for the library and equipment for the museum. 

The Publication Committee was not satisfied with the 
progress of "The Oklahoma Mason" and reported that there 
really should be a subsidy from Grand Lodge. Generally 
speaking, the magazine is reaching only those Masons who 
are already active members, who attend lodge meetings and 
district meetings, and are really interested but the basic 
problem is to reach the Masons who do not attend their 
Lodges. The Committee on Finance and Appropriations 
recommended a subsidy of $1000. to "The Oklahoma Mason", 
the official publication of Grand Lodge and a grant of 
$1,500. to the Masonic Education Committee for completion 
of its programme and for buying shelves for the library and 
the museum. 

The Grand Lecturer reported holding a number of very 
successful schools, both district and local, but has found 
great need for schools in many of the smaller Lodges. "In 
nearly every case", he says, "night schools will best ac- 
complish the purpose". He is rendering excellent service.

OREGON— 1959 

109th Annual Communication — June 10 - 12 

Grand Master — M.W. Bro. Walter C. Lansing 
Grand Secretary — M.W. Bro. H. D. Proudfoot 

Lodges, 192 (1 U.D.) Membership, 44,546. Gain, 56. 

The Foreword in the Proceedings is a one-page biography 
of the Grand Master. Some of the Oregon Lodges previously 
belonged to Missouri and California. 

The Grand Master's Address occupied some 22 pages. He 
conducted or approved eight occasional communications of 
Grand Lodge, issued four proxies, made several rulings and 
decisions, approved many By-laws or amendments thereto, 
and issued several dispensations. Among the latter were 
several permitting the reception and action of committees 
on petitions of candidates who were physically handicapped. 

Among the permanent active committees are those on 
Landmarks, Masonic and Eastern Star Home, the Code, 
Public Schools, Masonic Education. Publicity and Masonic 
Blood Bank. He recommended that the installation of officers 
be held on St. John the Baptist's Day, June 24th. 

Towards the end of his oration the Grand Master said, — 
"It is my sincere hope that Masonry will move enthusiastical- 
ly, assume its proper place in American society and govern- 
ment as a leader in defending and promoting those principles 
and standards Which are so essentially necessary to the life 
of a free and progressive people." 

The Grand Orator, Earl T. Newbry, gave an excellent 
address on Freemasonry as a champion of freedom, public 
schools and things cherished in a democratic world. 

The Committee on the Recognition of other Grand Lodges 
reported in favour of granting the request of Germany. A 
number of requests were submitted to and recommended by 
the Committee of Jurisprudence. These had reference to the 
bonding of the Treasurer and Secretary, expenditures by these 
officers, presentation of periodical reports, duties of trustees, 
and details of various financial and other matters. Altogether 
there were 20 amendments. 

Bro. E. B. Beaty reviewed several reports of various 
Grand Jurisdictions under several topics including "The 
Legend of Hiram Abif."

PENNSYLVANIA— 1959 

Animal Communication — December 28, and Quarterly 
Communications in March, June and September. 

Grand Master, 1958-59— R.W. Bro. S. M. Chilcote 
Grand Master, 1959-60— R.W. Bro. M. F. Balcom 

Lodges, 594. Membership, 257,729. Gain, 466. 

It will be observed that the title of the Grand Master is 
Right Worshipful; so far as we know, the Grand Lodge of 
Pennsylvania and Masonic Jurisdiction Thereunto Belonging, 
(to give the correct name) is the only Grand Lodge that so 
designates its Grand Master. This is the oldest or, as some 
maintain, the second oldest Grand Lodge in the United States. 
Two of its Past Grand Masters, R.W. Bro. R. R. Lew-is and 
R.W. Bro. William E. Yeager are particularly well known to 
our Grand Lodge. 

If space were available, it would be worthwhile to re- 
print in full the address of Grand Master Balcom but a few 
significant extracts must suffice. "What's happening to 
Masonry in this on- rushing, ever-changing: world of ours? 
Why are not more men interested in their labour? The Craft 
is still at work but the workers are beginning to thin out 
Why? We have been enjoying a free ride. We have been 
free-wheeling, coasting on the impetus and momentum of the 
good work those before us gave the Craft." 

The Grand Master suggested a new programme of which 
some points were: (1) Increase the attendance at meetings; 
(2) Make meetings more interesting; (3) Improve the 
physical condition of lodge rooms. (Rooms on the third floor 
he refers to as "cardiac halls"); (4) Re-kindle the spirit of 
Masonry. "Attendance at Craft Lodge Meetings is perhaps 
the greatest of all problems as far as Masonry is concerned 
to-day." In 1956 a survey showed that many Lodges had an 
attendance of only 8 per cent for the year! "Everyone should 
set aside at least one night a month, for ten months, to 
attend lodge and help the officers and the 'faithful' who are 
carrying on for the good of the Craft". 

There are fine Homes; the hospital is occupied to its 
normal capacity and the cottage rooms are practically all 
full. Now "home assistance" is to be provided. The budget 
for the Homes for 1960 is $1,6000,000. 

"The Masonic Fraternity has hidden its good deeds under 
the so-called bushel too long." said the Grand Master, "We 
know no reason why our good deeds and the principles of the 
Fraternity should not have more public knowledge." 



56 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ' 

The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the State and 
the Chancellor of the University of Pittsburgh were made 
Masons v "at sight". It is stated that this is not done any- 
where else but it was done once in Ontario and, I think, 

once in Alberta. 

■ ... 

The Committee on Masonic Culture is doing excellent 
work by means of pamphlets and otherwise in promoting 
Masonic Education. 

We are all proud of the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania 
and of the fine contribution it is making to the development 
of Freemasonry. 






PHILIPPINES— 1939 

43rd Annual Communication — April 28-29-30 

Grand Master, 1958-59— M.W.- Bro. H. R. Hick 
Grand Master, 1959-60— M.W. Bro. M. M. Ofilada 

Lodges, 112. Membership, 10,463. Loss, 233. 

It is interesting to note that, of the members, 50 per 
cent are Filipinos; 40 per cent are Americans; 6 per cent 
are Chinese; and all other nationalities' make up the remain- 
ing 4 per cent. "We are living in a part of the world", said 
the Grand Master, "where the eyes of all are focussed and 
trouble is constantly brewing. ... I feel proud that we have 
a membership so diversified in nationality, yet so solidified 
in purpose and dedication. In this respect, we have one 
of the finest Grand Lodges in the World." He recommended 
public installations on every possible occasion in order that 
the citizens might know more about Freemasonry and he 
urged that the finances of Lodges must be kept in good 
order; that debts be promptly paid; and that income must be 
increased if that was at all necessary to meet expenses. 
Greater support was recommended for the official magazine, 
"The Cabletow" and every Lodge was urged to prepare a 
short news letter regularly about the activities of the Lodge 
and the brethren. 

To his successor he recommended the establishment of a 
Lodge of Research which would, of course, do no degree 
work but would confine its interest to Masonic Research and 
Education. He would not draw any conclusion from an in- 
complete survey which showed 49 per cent of the membership 
to be over 50 years of age, though he wondered whether the 
brethren enjoy exceptionally good longevity or whether 
young men are not coming in as they should. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 57 

For frank statements and rather stern warnings, few 
could excel the report of the Grand Lodge Lecturers who 
found several faults in the general conduct of members of 
constituent Lodges. First. Brethren must observe proper 
decorum and must not wear polo shirts at lodge meetings. 
Tylers were to be instructed not to admit any brother who 
was not properly dressed. Second. Members must not 
smoke during degree work because smoking is allowed only 
during lectures and "it would be more edifying if it were 
totally prohibited in the Lodge." Third. In many cases, 
the "monitor" is used in open Lodge and some Masters 
cannot open or close a Lodge without glancing at the ritual. 
Drastic action is promised if this practice does not cease. 
Fourth. In some Lodges, members move restlessly about 
when the Lodge is at work, never saluting the Master. 
Heated arguments must be avoided during a meeting. On 
one occasion a member raised his hand, shouted, and inter- 
rupted the Master. Fifth. It has been the practice in 
some Lodges to frighten and tease the candidate and to 
handle him roughly, thus degrading what should be a moral 
and spiritual experience. Sixth. Applause must cease. 
Seventh. Lodge meetings must be opened on time. 

But there is another and brighter picture. "Some Lodges 
have made much progress in the ritualistic work and degrees 
are conferred proficiently and impressively. Enlightenment 
of the members on Masonic symbols and allegories will bring 
them closer to Freemasonrv." In brief, Masonic Education 
is to be stressed and should produce good results.

Lodges, 16. Membership, 1,488. Gain, 9. 

At this Communication there were guests from British 
Columbia, Nova Scotia, NeAv Brunswick; and New York. 
Thirty-eight Grand Representatives were presented to the 
Grand Master. The Grand Master visited, during the year, 
every Lodge in the Jurisdiction. 

From those who are interested in Masonic Education 
and who realize that many different ideas are held, especially 
in the United States, regarding the meaning and the content 
of Masonic Education, the following quotation from the 
Report of the Grand Lecturer, will receive cordial approval; 
"I believe that the officers are doing their work to the best 
of their ability and, so far as the actual degree work is 



58 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

concerned, they are to be commended. It has become ap- 
parent to me that there is a lack of instruction with regard 
to ancient customs and procedure which are not found in the 
ritual but have been handed down by word of mouth and 
personal contact." He advises Lodges of Instruction. 

"We are all aware", the Grand Lecturer continued, "that 
there are two rituals in use in this jurisdiction and it is 
very difficult for a brother who has worked for many years 
under the old ritual to become proficient in the new work." 

During 1 the year all secretaries received a letter from 
the Grand 1 Secretary, instructing them how to make out 
their returns to Grand Lodge but "very few followed the 
instructions." 

The Grand Secretary called the attention of all Lodges to 
the importance of keeping up their history. "In justice to the 
Lodge", he said, "to those members who are gone and to 
those who are living, it is important that all outstanding 
events be carefully recorded." 

The Orphan Fund has financial assets of over $12,000.00 
and the Benevolent Fund holds bonds to the value of $32,800. 

A large number of constituent Lodges were late in 
forwarding their returns; these returns were mostly in- 
correct, and several Lodges were delinquent in payment of 
dues to Gand Lodge. The per capita dues are $2.25 of which 
$1.75 is for Grand Lodge, 25 cents for the Orphan Fund and 
25 cents for the Benevolent Fund. 

One curious recommendation of the Board was sent back. 
It was that the Grand Master be authorized to confer the 
rank of Past Master on any Master Mason who had served 
his Lodge faithfully and well for 35 years!

There were six Special Communications; four for in- 
stituting or constituting new Lodges and two for the dedic- 
ation of new Masonic Temples. Our Grand Lodge was 
represented by M.W. Bro. J. A. Hearn, P.G.M. The Grand 
Master reminded his brethren that it was on the 20th day 
of November, 1759, that the first Provincial Grand Lodge 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 59 

was established. "From this origin Masonry has continued 
in the Province, with certain viciccitudes, it is admitted, and 
to-day we take pride in the achievements of the past two 
hundred years." The Grand Lodge of Quebec was created 
in October, 1869, ninety years ago. 

"It would be helpful," said the Grand Master, "if we 
could get to the root of the cause of the large number (183) 
of the suspensions that are reported — to satisfy ourselves 
just whether we have been faulty in our selections or if our 
attitude towards these members has been somewhat apa- 
thetic." There he outlined a universal problem! In visit- 
ations, a list of which is given, the Grand Master did not 
spare his time or his energy. He attended the biennial 
meeting of the All-Canada Masonic Conference and the 
North American Conference in Washington. Masonic Church 
Services were given his cordial commendation. 

The Masonic Blood Bank is now under the wing of the 
Board of Relief which is rendering magnificent service in 
this connection. An interesting ruling was that the Master 
of a Lodge must be "a resident within the confines of the 
jurisdiction of his Lodge." This seems reasonable. The 
History of Quebec Freemasonry has been written and is to 
be printed and on sale in the near future. 

The Committee on the State of Masonry deplores the 
scanty attendance at lodge meetings, especially in the rural 
areas. A few Lodges (5) had no initiations during the year; 
44 Lodges showed a net increase; 54 showed decreases; and 
8 remained stationary. Several Lodges have found it neces- 
sary to increase their annual dues slightly. 

The Committee on Benevolence and Charity presented 
a fine report, showing that this phase of Masonic activity is 
not neglected but, on the contrary, receives special attention. 

Printed and supplementary bulletins are issued each year 
and are well received. The Committee on Research and 
Education endeavours in this way to keep attendants and 
non- attendants informed on the activities of Grand Lodge. 
The Committee would like to see more use made of the 
Library to which a number of books were added during th 
year. 

Naturally, we in Ontario are especially interested in the 
welfare of our neighbouring Grand Lodge and are proud 
to observe that it is more than holding its own, under* 
difficult circumstances. Through almost every page of the 
Proceedings one feels the cloud of sorrow occasioned by the 
death of Right Worshipful Brother Louthood. This Reviewer 
had the privilege of the friendship of the late Grand Secre- 
tary for whom he had the highest regard, esteem, and 
affection.

Centenary Celebration 

Rarely, if ever, has this Reviewer perused a voulme so 
packed with interesting 1 , inspiring, and intriguing Masonic 
history, philosophy, and education as is the September, 1959, 
issue of The Ashlar, a magazine published by the United 
Grand Lodge of Freemasons of Queensland, Australia. They 
hold faithfully to the Masonic traditions of the Old Land, 
than which no traditions or customs are better. From the 
editorial page we quote four sentences: "The high standard 
of life that Freemasonry looks for is supported and nourished 
by the symbolic teachings which are used to cement men 
of all nations, creeds, and colour, one to the other the world 
over." "Education, that knowledge having with it a moral 
outlook, is the highway that leads Freemasons to their goal." 
"The names of men who have been stalwarts in the history 
of Queensland during this period have also been stalwarts 
in Queensland Freemasonry." "The principles of Free- 
masonry remain to-day as they ever have been; square 
conduct, tolerance to all, level steps, moral attitudes, up- 
rightness, respect for cleanliness and virtue, and a clear 
conscience." Notice, please, the frequent use of the word 
"Freemasons" whereas, in the United States, the word is 
almost, if not continually, "Masons." 

The Grand Master. M.W. Bro. H. B. Milliner, is the 
author of the leading article entitled "What is Freemasonry?" 
and there are nine other well-written and thought-provoking 
articles by leaders of the Craft. If one has been able to 
work out the threads of history at all correctly, it is a 
fascinating story. 

One hundred years ago there were three District Grand 
Lodges in Queensland — English, Scottish, and Irish — and 
attempts were made from time to time to unite them in one 
Grand Lodge but nothing happened until 1903 when the 
Irish District Grand Lodge proved to be the catalyst; and 
24 Irish Lodges and 14 Scottish Lodges united to form the 
Grand Lodge of Queensland in 1904. There must have been 
many animated discussions in those days. 

In 1920, the English and the Scottish District Grand 
Lodges united "for the one purpose of unity and amalgam- 
ation with the Grand Lodge of Queensland". This new 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 61 

organization was named the Queensland Grand Lodge. Eight 
months later, December, 1920, after presumably friendly 
negotiations between the two Grand Lodges, arrangements 
were well under way and in May, 1921, the United Grand 
Lodge of Antient, Free and Accepted Masons of Queensland 
was established. 

The Grand Masters hold office for varying terms, some- 
times one year, three years frequently, five years occasionally. 
Bursaries have been set up for the children in Masonic 
Homes. Each Grand Master in recent years has stressed 
the paramount necessity for Masonic Education and several 
have said that "The Ashlar" is an excellent medium for this 
project. Though statistics are not given, it is apparent that 
Freemasonry is flourishing "down under" — eleven new 
Lodges were consecrated in 1958-59. 

38th Annual Report 

An interesting feature of one of the Communications 
was a report made by Professor T. G. H. Jones, P.G.M. who 
had represented the Grand Lodge at the celebrations in 
California. He told of attending the Conference of the 
Universities of the British Commonwealth in Canada. 
""Notable differences," he said, "were apparent" between 
Masonic customs in the United States and those in Queens- 
land. In the lodge room he visited there was no "square 
pavement" and diagonal movements were common. The 
Lodge was opened and closed in the third degree, with no 
reference whatever to the first or second degrees. All 
business was conducted in the third degree, unlike the 
English and the Canadian procedure. AH present wore the 
E.A. apron of spotless white and the Master wore a top hat. 
The working of the third degree was highly dramatic; the 
festive board was almost non-existent, just a few sandwiches, 
coffee, no toasts and no speeches. "An important feature of 
Masonry in California and in most parts of the United States 
i9 the entire absence of alcoholic beverages at Masonic 
gatherings — meetings and dinners alike. The large bank 
oalances of some of the Lodges is, no doubt, a direct conseq- 
uence of this policy in the United States 1 — it is worth reflect- 
ing on". . . "Rulings by the Grand Master have to be con- 
firmed and ratified by Grand Lodge and that body in many 
instances does not hesitate not to confirm or ratify them' — 
a practice widely different from our own which does not 
allow any questioning of a Grand Master's rulings." (Thought- 
ful Masons, like M.W. Bro. Jones, are interested in observing 
differences and trying to account for them.) 

Benevolence is a primary objective of this Grand Lodge; 
there were 30 brethren. 5 widows, and 2 married couples in 
residence in the Freemasons' Homes at Sandeate and, in the 
Freemasons' Homes Hosoi+al. at the same place, there were 
14 male and 3 female patients. 



62 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

Scholarships are awarded to selected students, with 
Masonic connection, at the University of Queensland. The 
official publication, "The Ashlar", a very excellent Masonic 
magazine, had greatly increased its circulation during the 
year. In response to several enquiries a strict order was 
issued that "under no circumstances shall any organization 
other than Masonic Lodges, Chapters etc. be allowed to meet 
in a Masonic Temple, whether dedicated or not." Following 
a complaint by the police, Lodges were warned "that, if 
public address systems are used, the volume must be kept 
down so that the sounds therefrom can be heard in the 
supper room only." 

One obtains the impression from a perusal of the reports 
of the meetings of this Grand Lodge that it is wisely 
governed by earnest Masons.

Small in numbers though it may be, as compared with 
most others, and small though its Jurisdiction is, this Grand 
Lodge has a name longer than has our Grand Lodge or the 
Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania, its technical designation 
being, "The Grand Lodge of the Most Ancient and Honourable 
Society of Free and Accepted Masons for the State of Rhode 
Island and Providence Plantations." The attendance at the 
Annual Communication was 190. It is an active and well- 
managed organization. The Grand Master stated that 
he "fiercely defends tradition and custom" but he appointed 
several committees to study up-to-date procedures if such 
should be desirable and he arranged for a saving of time 
in balloting at the Communications. In some cases Lodges 
have been accepting: candidates whose homes have been out- 
side their own jurisdictions and there was a great deal of 
discussion over the proposal to abolish jurisdictional lines 
completely. 

At a public installation of Moslem Grotto the Grand 
Master was made a "Life Member and a Prophet at Sight" 
for which he expressed his warm gratitude. 

Even greater strides than in preceding years were made 
in the proerramme of Masonic Education and plans were 
considered for further development. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 63 

"With the ever-increasing costs of materials and services, 
your Grand Lodge and some of the subordinate Lodges are 
operating on a shoestring or on a deficit. Reserve funds 
and permanent funds are being used to pay current expenses." 
So said the Grand Master and he went on to advise, "Let us 
not sell Masonry too cheaply in our jurisdiction." The 
Finance Committee recommended that the per capita tax be 
$1.50 per member. 

Last year, for the first time, the "forums" were in 
operation in all seven districts. The Grand Lecturer said, in 
part, "It is the concensus of the brethren that these forums 
have filled a great void in our Masonic Jurisdiction. As 
time passes, the need for supplementary Masonic Education 
will be even more evident. The universality and lore of 
Masonry is a touchstone of our Fraternity and our future 
brethren should be taught this and other dogmas. In this 
manner they will not only be preserved but will be trans- 
mitted from generation to generation." 

Twenty-two Lodges lived within their incomes; twenty- 
one did not. The largest Lodge has 1,350 members; the 
smallest has 75.

Several significant statements were made by our friend, 
M.W. Bro. Douglas Fraser, in his Foreword to his Reviews 
which are more crisp and informative than any we have 
perused. He says: "As we forecast a year aero, there has 
been a substantial drop in the overall gain in U.S.A. member- 
ship. Eleven American Grand Lodges report losses. In 
Canada, on the other hand, the gain betters last year's 
figure." "Some Grand Masters comment on lack of new 
material, non-attendance, waning interest in Masonic Edu- 
cation and libraries 'unpatrondzed and buried in dust.' " 
"Deficit financing is far too common. Our Grand Lodge 
seems to be in a cycle of deficit balances. Costs continue 
to spiral." "In the early years of our Grand Lodge, we 
were frequently invited to lay corner-stones but it is almost 
unheard of to-day." 

Commenting on the district meetings, the Grand Master 
said in his Address: "The average attendance was only 64. 
This is only about 10 per cent of our total membership. 



64 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

63 Lodges were not represented at last year's Annual Com- 
munication." Dispensations were granted for three new 
Lodges, two in Reginia and one in Saskatoon. In the urban 
centres, Craft Masonry seems to be flourishing but that is 
not the case in the rural areas. 

Masonic Education receives a good deal of attention, the 
principal medium being the monthly publication entitled "The 
Tracing Board," to which my classmate of many years ago, 
R.W. Bro. J. E. Campbell, is a frequent contributor. 192 
Lodges have established libraries of various sizes and quality 
and 92 Lodges have their committees on Masonic Education, 
but figures on the use of the libraries are not encouraging. 

After Benevolence, which is well and wisely handled; 
and, after Masonic Education, which is always kept to the 
fore, comes Saskatchewan's primary project which is "Free- 
masonry and Youth." The Fund for this worthwhile enter- 
prise received additions of over $10,000 during the year. 121 
Lodges took pait in Youth activities of some kind such as 
youth nights, social evenings, sports events, father and son 
nights, university nights, etc. One Lodge awarded fifty- 
dollar scholarships. The comments of the District Deputy 
Grand Masters are summarized by such remarks as; "a hit 
and miss arrangement"; "things are pretty well at a standstill 
now;" "we need a different approach"; "send us literature 
on the 17 Flan." These evaluations 1 produce some new ideas 
which give promise of putting new life into this activity. 
"Whale endorsing fully the "17 Flan" there is to be selection 
of individual boys for guidance in their education and their 
careers. Saskatchewan has, in the opinion of the Committee, 
led the way in the Masonic world in its work for Free- 
mason ry and Youth and "now, having emerged from the 
development stages, is prepared to raise its sights with a 
uniform plan that meets the high aims and objects of our 
Order." 

We all wish this fine Grand Lodge the greatest of 

success in its laudable objectives.

FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 65 

overseas would receive inspiration of the highest sort by 
arranging to attend a Communication of one of the Grand 
Lodges of the Old Land. 

Three new Lodges were authorized at the July meeting. 
One at Montego Bay, Jamaica, (Initiation fee, $60.00; annual 
dues, $15.00); another in Edinburgh, (Initiation, $31.00; 
annual dues, $3.00). ($3.00 to the pound). At the September 
meeting two new Lodges were approved, one at Jaipur, 
India, and the other at Ahmedabad, India. 

The Grand Master Mason accepted invitations to visit 
District Grand Lodges in New Zealand and in South Africa. 
Consideration was given to a proposed group insurance 
scheme for all members of the Grand Lodge Staff. 

Perhaps it is safe to assert that Benevolence is the 
principal project of the Grand Lodge of Scotland. Remark- 
ably well organized though it is, the Grand Committee is 
seeking means for improvement and has sent a questionnaire 
to all Provincial Grand Lodges, asking for particulars. (By 
the way, there is a Scottish District Grand Lodge in New- 
foundland.) Some of the questions are of special interest. 
"How many visits are made to annuntants and by whom?" 
"Do you feel our annuitants would appreciate more frequent 
visits?" "Would you be in favour of 'Comforts' being granted 
applicants?" From this one might conclude that "relief" 
may be cold without an admixture of "brotherly love." 
Scotland really knows how! 

Grand Lodge Benevolence falls under three main heads: 
(1) grants, including Christmas parcels, to brethren and 
dependents living at home; (2) annuities to brethren and 
dependents and to children of deceased brethren living at 
home; (3) home care in two Masonic Homes, Ault Wharrie 
and Randolph Hill. 

"Money gifts are always appreciated and can be used 
to overcome all kinds of difficulties. Christmas percels have 
proved very acceptable not only for the good things they 
contain but also for the thought conveyed with them of 
being remembered at Christmas time." It is recommended 
that "Lodges be advised to appoint as lodge almoner a 
brother of experience so that by his leadership he may be 
able to stimulate within the Lodge a richer sense of Masonic 
benevolence." 

Grants ranging from $60. to $150. were made to 16 
students to assist them, the majority in their university 
studies, some in training for teaching, one in glass bending, 
and one in Occupational Therapy. This is one of the best 
means of assisting youth. 



66 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

To read of the many and varied activities -of the Grand 
Lodge of Scotland makes one more proud than ever to be a 
Freemason. 



Annual Communication — November 30 

This was the occasion of the Installation, for the third 
consecutive year, of the Grand Master Mason, Brother the 
Right Honourable the Earl of Eglinton and Winton. It was a 
most impressive ceremony. 

The Grand Master Mason, addressing the brethren 
briefly after he ascended the throne, stated that Grand Lodge 
had once again had a useful and successful year. He had 
been greatly pleased that a new Lodge had been erected and 
consecrated in the metropolitan district and he congratulated 
the Provincial Grand Master of Glasgow on the addition of 
the eightieth Lodge to their number. He went on to say, 
"We still have a Ion a- way to go. We have a number of 
growing towns within Scotland and I should like to see our 
Scottish Freemasonry keening abreast of this development. 
Do let us have more Lodges, brethren, with smaller total 
memberships so that the interest and work may be spread 
over a greater number of office-bearers. Quite a number 
of Lodges are now only putting through one, two, or at 
most three candidates at one meeting and there is no 
question whatever that these candidates have a much clearer 
conception of our great Masonic principles." 

He announced that the number of grants from the Fund 
of Scottish Benevolence and the Annuity Fund showed c.n 
increase in both cases. Further he said, "Our voluntary 
donations from the Daughter Lodges are not sufficient to 
meet our various benevolent commitments. We have to 
depend on the interest from our invested funds. We should 
endeavour to mak» on 1 * co-rebribr«tTn-ns meet all our benevolent 
outlays and I would ask every Lodge to give serious thought 
to this." 

In due course there followed that same evening the 
Festval of St. Andrew, the highlight of the year for every 
Scot, the function when the foundation slogan is. "I trust 
we shall have but one aim, to please each other and to unite 
in the Trand desifm of hein 0- haopv °nd communicatmsr hao- 
piness." "On this hanpy day," said one sneaker, "on this 
dav of Andrpw. the fisher of men. the Aoo&tle. the Saint and 
Mi? = 'onary, Patron of Scotland, we should go back from this 
gathering rejoicing still more in the privilege we have of 
associating as free men and Freemasons." 

Said the Grand Master Mason again, "We may claim 
with pride that the roots of Freemasonry are deeper in 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 67 

Scotland than anywhere else in the world and it has ever 
been the boast of our Scottish Freemason that his work has 
been good work and square work." 

Preceding 1 the Annual Communication there had been, 
on November 5th, 1959, a Quarterly Communication devoted 
to reports and general business. 



SOUTH AUSTRALIA 

Half-yearly (October, 1958) and Annual Communication 
April 15, 1959 

Grand Master, 1958-59— M.W. Bro. Sir Robert George 
Grand Master, 1959-60— M.W. Bro. D. B. Ross 

Lodges, 198. Membership, 26,905. Gain, 640. 

To maintain unchanged and unsullied the ancient 
traditions of Freemasonry, to preserve dignity and decorum 
in conduct and in dress, to provide adequately for aged and 
infirm brethren and dependents of deceased brethren, and to 
assist sons and daughters of Masons who are willing and 
able to benefit by educational facilities — these are some of 
the objectives of this admirable Grand Lodge which was 
established on April 17th, 1884. 

At the previous Annual Communication, scholarships No. 

17 and 18 were established and to these were added, at this 
Annual Communication, Nos. 19 and 20: each scholarship 
to be of the annual value of S150. Children of ages 10 to 

18 years inclusive are eligible and the scholarships are to be 
awarded "for the education of necessitous, not necessarily 
brilliant, pupils." 

One of the country Lodges had reported, said the 
President of the Board, (hat a movement was on foot to 
establish a so-called Masonic fraternity, restricted to women. 
That Lodge was warned "that members of the craft are 
absolutely forbidden to have anything whatsoever to do with 
that or any like organization." There was no reflection on 
the organization itself but a Mason whose wife, sister, or 
daughter might happen to be associated with it "must 
exercise the utmost tact and discretion" to avoid attending 
any of its social functions. 

"The President also referred to the matter of smoking 
while wearing resralia. He asked that the brethren should 
observe the order banning smokin? in regalia. Some brethren 
seemed to think they were observing the prohibition by turn- 
ing their aprons around. By such action they were doing 
something which was undignified and, in fact, aggravated 



68 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

the offence. If brethren wished to smoke, they should see 
that their regalia was taken off before doing so. He hoped 
that brethren would pay heed to the matter." (This quotation 
is from the Board's report.) 

At present the Grand Lodge has four pairs of cottage 
homes in one place and two in another. Some are three- 
roomed; some are four-roomed; no rental is charged. Ap- 
proval was given for the construction of "flatlets" (a new 
word to us), at a cost of $69,000. for the accommodation of 
aged brethren and aged widows. 

A Lodge enquired "whether it would be permissible to 
wear some attire cooler than the usual evening clothes 
during the summer months." The Grand Master gave ap- 
proval to wearing "white mess jackets during the summer 
months so lone as black trousers, socks, and shoes and a 
white shirt and collar with a black bow tie are worn with the 
jacket." 

Summonses should be mailed, said the Grand Master, in 
sealed envelopes. Ganvassine for office, by a candidate or 
by his friends, is strictly forbidden.

M.W. Bro. Harry L. Martyn represented our Grand 
Lodge at this Communication; for some years there has been 
a close connection of kindred spirits between this Grand 
Lodge and ours. 

Here is a Grand Master whose example others might 
well emulate. He said, "I have not accepted invitations to 
ladies' night banquets nor have I been able to attend meet- 
ings of individual Lodges except on special occasions. Time 
simply will not permit a Grand Master who must earn his 
livelihood to do all of the things which would be pleasant 
but which are time-consuming and physically exhausting." 
Grand Masters have been known to wreck their health by 
trying to do too much. There were Special Communications 
for the laying of the corner-stones of three Temples 1 and 
for the dedication of seven, all of which indicates progress. 
The lodge secretaries furnished the Grand Master with the 
names and addresses of 645 newly-raised brethren (with 
dates of raising), and he wrote individual letters to each 
of these new members. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 69 

A candidate declined to answer a question on his application 
form because, being a Canadian, he was unwilling to take 
an obligation to uphold the Constitution of the United States. 
There are no requirements that an applicant must be a 
citizen of the U.S.A. and so the Grand Master directed that 
he be asked to answer an additional question which was 
"Are you willing to assume an obligation which will bind 
you to uphold the Constitution of the United States of 
America insofar as such obligation does not conflict with 
your allegiance to the British Crown." If he replied in the 
affirmative, he would be eligible; if in the negative, his 
application could not be ballotted on. 

A surprising question was this. "May a constituent 
Lodge finance a building programme by the lottery of an 
automobile?" The answer was "No", of course, not only 
because lotteries are prohibited in the State but also because, 
as the Grand Master said, "Such a scheme would violate 
the tenets of Freemasonry and would tend to degrade the 
Fraternity in the eyes of man. As an honourable institution, 
respected by mankind. Freemasonry must be prepared to 
pay its own way." Heartily we agree. 

Masonic Education in South Carolina continues to be 
handled in large measure through the "district inspirational 
meetings" and through the pages of the magazine "Masonic 
Light." 

There was discussion of a proposal that Grand Lodge 
take over the ownership and management of an existing 
college and make it a Masonic University. Masons in our 
country, who are university men, will hope for South 
Carolina's sake that they don't step into that! 



SOUTH DAKOTA— 1959

Grand Master, 1958-59— M.W. Bro. E. L. Johnson 
Grand Master, 1959-60— M.W. Bro. N. J. Doolittle 

Lodges, 168. Membership, 21,414 Loss, 20. 

In his Address the Grand Master stated that a four-point 
programme had been adopted at the beginning of his year 
and that it had been well carried on by the officers to whom 
each phase of the work had been entrusted. The first, which 
\\ as handed to the Junior Grand Warden, was Masonry ajid 
Americanism: the second, which was in the hands of the 
Deputy Grand Master, was the Masonic Service Association; 
the fourth, under the direction of the Senior Grand Warden, 
was Public Schools and Youth Organizations; and the Grand 
Chaplain took over Masonry and the Church. In so doing 



70 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

the Grand Master proved himself to be a good executive, a 
good organizer; he attended 24 District Meetings and visited 
widely. 

The Grand Master made certain very definite recom- 
mendations; that membership in the Mid-West Conference on 
Masonic Education be continued; that publication of the 
"Masonic Messenger" be continued; that a committee on 
Public Schools be appointed with an appropriation of $150; 
and that official recognition be given to the Order of De 
Molay and to Job's Daughters, constituent Lodges having 
authority to sponsor them financially. 

The Grand Secretary expressed deep regret that, in 
his 17th and his 18th reports to Grand Lodge, he had been 
obliged to record a loss in membership. This had never 
happened before and he hopes it will not be the case from 
now on. Let us heartily agree with him. Annual dues paid 
by Lodges are $2.00 for each Master Mason. In most Grand 
Lodges in the United States the word "tellers" is used where 
we use the word "scrutineers". South Dakota has a flag 
of its own, as our Nova Scotia has. Masonic Education 
has an annual appropriation of $1,500.00. 

In his Report the Fraternal Correspondent, a canny 
Scot, and a kindred spirit with our mutual friend, M.W. Bro. 
William Douglas of Manitoba, terms the Grand Lodge of 
England, "the Mother of us all"; but, of course, being a 
Scot, qualifies this by saying that Old Mother Kilwinning, 
now number zero in the register of the Grand Lodge of 
Scotland, sponsored other Lodges and set them to work. 
Mary's Chapel, Edinburgh Lodge No. 1, has, he states, a 
longer history, accompanied by proof, than Kilwinning. 
However, though "it is quite an admission for a Scotsman 
to make", he does admit that "the spread of Masonry to 
America began with the Grand Lodge of England." All 
through that competent Reviewer's work there is abundant 
evidence of Scottish originality. 

Freemasonry in South Dakota is in good hands and this 
Reviewer wishes the Grand Master and his officers the 
best of success.

The Grand Lodge of Tasmania holds Half- Yearly Com- 
munications, the previous one being on August 30, 1958. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 71 

The business of the Grand Lodge is under the supervision 
of the Board of General Purposes and the Board of Bene- 
volence. The reports of the two Boards suggest careful 
attention to business of Grand Lodge. The Benevolent Fund 
Account showed a balance of Assets of i47,127;10s;6d. 

The Lodges are organized into four Districts — Southern, 
Northern. North Western and Western. The Grand Inspecor 
of each district submitted a brief report on the condition of 
Masonry in his district. Generally the work appears to be 
of high calibre. 

The Grand Master's Address reviewed his year's efforts 
and emphasized especially the progress of Schemes by the 
Masonic Peace Memorial Haven Committee and the Southern 
Tasmania Masonic Home Association. He referred to the 
various effects, particularly those in Hobart and Launceston 
as "Applied Masonry." 

The new Grand Master, M.W. Bro. H. V. Jones, was 
installed during the afternoon ceremonies. Visitors were 
present from Queensland, Western Australia, Victoria, New 
South Wales and South Australia. M.W. Bro. Jones gave 
a very impressive address indicating the tremendous task 
imposed on him by the many meritorious measures of his 
predecessors. He said; "Opinions may alter, manners may 
change, creeds may rise and fall, but the moral law, as 
understood by Freemasons, is immutable; it is written on 
the tablets of enternity."

Half-yearly Communication — August 29 

Grand Master — M.W. Bro. H. V. Jones 

Lodges, 68. Membership, 8,631. Gain, 13. 

Eleven Lodges were not represented at this Communic- 
ation, the reason given being this; "As the agenda on this 
occasion contained nothing of a contentious nature, this 
probably accounts- for there being more Lodges not represent- 
ed than usual." (In our country a controversy at Grand 
Lodge is an extremely rare occurence.) 

This Grand Lodge carries on efficiently in the English 
tradition and, of course, stresses benevolence. Relief was 
given to Masons, their widows and children to the extent of 
$5,700, an increase of nearly $1,000 over the same period 
the year before. 34 widows and dependants of deceased 
Masons and 14 brethren participated in the_ financial assist- 
ance provided. At the Annual Communication Grand Lodge 
agreed to distribute a surplus over and above $3,000 in its 
No. 2 benevolent fund account to the two Masonic Homes. 



72 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

Installation collections were not as great as in the previous 
year. (For a small Grand Lodge this is an excellent record.) 

"Pensions to-day are insufficient to meet the necessities 
for living and the Board is endeavouring to relieve the strain 
and stress of our aged brethren and widows 1 wherever pos- 
sible." Brethren were asked to continue and, if possible, to 
increase their contributions. 

The Grand Master conducted Installations in all centres 
of the State and was impressed with the vitality evident in 
almost all the Lodges he visited. He commended the custom 
in many Lodges to have at least one special church service 
during the year and expressed the hope that all Tasmanian 
Freemasons would give a lead in assisting church activities 
and in correct observance of a Sunday. 

For disseminating so much interesting and instructive 
information and for providing instructors he commended 
highly the two Lodges of Research. He deplored the practice 
of asking candidates to repeat only a portion of the obligation 
and instisted that the whole of each obligation must be 
memorized. 

To the stewards he issued instructions regarding the 
conduct of the festive board. "It is not true hospitality," he 
said, "to force drink on brethren or to open bottles of liquor 
in excess of requirements. Further, when the W.M. leaves 
the festive board, on no account should more liquor be con- 
sumed there or within the precincts of the building." 

Some Lodges were giving thought to the problem of the 
falling off in attendance of their own members, the Grand 
Master found, and he outlined a few of his own ideas on the 
causes of this, as follows: (a) Admission of men who cannot 
appreciate Freemasonry; (b) the deadening effect of constant 
degree work; (c) the lack of suitable instruction; (d) the 
lack of attention to fellowship within the Lodge; (e) the 
undignified conduct of some members; and (e) the waste of 
time before and after the ceremony. 

The Grand Lodge of Tasmania is fully entitled to our 
respect and our admiration for the excellent work it is doing 
in a quiet way.

In the Report of the Committee on Fraternal Correspond- 
ence, whose Chairman is M.W. Bro. W. P. Douglas, concern 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 73 

is expressed over the small attendance at lodge meetings 
which is more in evidence in large, metropolitan Lodges than 
in the smaller rural and suburban Lodges. Reference is made 
to the part taken by our Past Grand Master. M.W. Bro. H. L. 
Martyn, in the Conference of Grand Masters in Washington 
and emphatic commendation is given to our organization of 
Districts and their "teams" consisting of the District Deputy 
Grand Master, the District Secretary, the District Chaplain, 
and the District Chairman of Masonic Education. Referring 
to the work of our Late M.W. Bro. N. C. Hart, the Report 
says, "His very fine Report covers 185 pages and affords an 
excellent opportunity for the interested brother to find out 
what is going on in the Masonic World." 

Illegal and unmasonic electioneering is forbidden by an 
edict issued in 1875; members are now reminded of this law. 
Annual membership dues vary from $3.00 to $25.00, the rate 
in 172 Lodges being $5.00; fees for degrees vary from $35.00 
to $100.00 Fifteen Lodges did not confer any degrees 
during the year but another Lodge conferred 221 degrees 
while two others conferred respectively 177 and 151 degrees. 
A proposal to give every lodge secretary a vote in Grand 
Lodge was not approved. 

Much thought and effort "have been devoted to the 
formulation and development of a plan of education designed 
to enlighten the brethren, stimulate lodge attendance, and 
indoctrinate new members." It is the expectation of the 
members of the Committee that "this plan, when perfected, 
will be of unlimited benefit to the Fraternity." We wish 
them the best of success. 

This Edict was issued: "Any Lodge failing to have its 
return in the hands of the Grand Secretary by 12 o'clock on 
January 25th or to pay its Grand Lodge dues to the Grand 
Secretary by 9 o'clock, a.m. on February 10th, shall pay 
as a penalty 5^ on the amount owing to the Grand Lodge 
for the per capita and tax on degrees." Many Grand Lodges 
seem to have a good deal of trouble with lodge secretaries! 
There are six pages of a list of extinct Lodges which have 
gone out of existence from the year 1796 to 1948. 

"Lodges are prohibited from receiving a lecture on any 
of the degrees of Masonry from initerant lecturers, except 
such lecturer present proper authority from the Grand 
Master." Edict 11. 

"No person shall be initiated, passed, or raised in any 
subordinate Lodge in this Jurisdiction who is engaged in 
the manufacture for sale or in the sale of intoxicating liquor 
as a beverage". Edict 59. Is this really logical and fair? 

"The Grand Lodge of Tennessee condemns and forbids 
the purchase, sale or use, within this Jurisdiction, of all 



74 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

written keys, ciphers, notes, or characters of any kind what- 
soever, purporting to be descriptive of the secret work, 
lectures, or ritual of the three symbolic degrees of Masonry." 
Edict 62. 



TEXAS— 1959 

124th Annual Communication — December 2-3 

Grand Master, 1958-59— M.W. Bro. R. E. Briscoe 
Grand Master, 1959-60— M.W. Bro. J. T. Bean 

Lodges, 959. Membership, 242,676. Gain, 1,719. 

Though this Grand Lodge achieved a reasonable gain 
in membership during the year, the Grand Master saw need 
for improvement. He pointed out that, in general, Lodges are 
more interested in making members than in making Masons. 
Desperately reeded, he said, are better informed Masons and 
more enthusiastic leadership from the officers of the con- 
stituent; Lodges. The Lodge System of Masonic Education 
would, in his opinion, produce excellent results. This pro- 
gramme is designed to be carried on by the constituent 
Lodges rather than by an independent organization. The 
candidate meets with the committee four times and is in- 
structed in the fundamentals of the Craft which every 
Mason should know. The material to be used at 'these 
meetings was printed in a booklet and distributed to every 
Master. It is reprinted in the Proceedings, covering 46 
pages; in the hands of enthusiastic teachers it should prove 
to be a brilliant success. This was the Grand Master's "tour 
de force." 

More and more the leaders of the Craft are stressing, as 
this Grand Master does, the well-known but 'too frequently 
forgotten fact that "the key to making Freemasonry a living 
vital force in every community lies in the hands of the 
officers of the constituent Lodges" — and many add that 
the "key man" is the Master. In Texas there were complaints 
that many newly-raised Master Masons were refusing or 
neglecting to take the necessary examination ; however, a 
survey showed that only approximately 25 per cent of the 
Lodges had unexamined Master Masons. Another problem, 
which crops up almost everywhere, is the poor attendance and 
this Grand Master wonders why so many members cannot 
attend once a month; as he says, this is really not asking a 
great deal. 

In the Masonic School there w T ere 133 boys and 185 girls 
and in the Home for Aged Masons there were 77 widows. 

There are 124 pages of interesting Reviews, the author 
being R.W. Bro. M. A. Childers, P.G.M. Among these is a 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 75 

kindly Review of our Proceedings and this reference: "It 
was this writer's privilege of visiting with M.W. Bro. 
Harry Martyn ait the Grand Masters' Conference in Washing- 
ton in February, 1959. He has a most pleasing personality 
and radiates the spirit of Masonry in his contacts with other 
people." (So say we all.) 

There is also a quotation from the Report of our Com- 
mittee on the Condition of Masonry. "A Mason should be 
in bed on the same day he goes to Lodge."

The Proceedings of the Free and Accepted Masons of 
Utah for 1959 commence with a short biographical sketch of 
Charles Leandar Prisk who was elected Grand Master for 
the year 1959 — 1960. He is a pharmacist in business, and 
for 38 years has attended the First Methodist Church in 
Salt Lake City. He has been an enthusiastic Mason since 
he reached the age of 21. 

The Committee on Credentials reported that all Grand 
Lodge Officers were present, and that representatives from 
30 constituent Lodges were in attendance. 

During the year two new Lodges were constituted by 
M.W. Bro. W. E. Cushing and their officers installed, and 
one Lodge had been transferred to a new location. 

The Grand Master reported the Craft to be healthy and 
prosperous throughout the Grand Jurisdiction and that the 
small increase in membership was due to business conditions. 
He visited every Lodge in the jurisdiction and the Washington 
Conference of Grand Masters. He refers to his various 
visits, changes in By-laws, and dispensations granted. 

Five bulletins were issued and distributed by Grand 
Lodge during the year. Three Masonic Clubs operated 
during the year. 

The Grand Master expressed his appreciation of the 
assistance he had received from the Grand Secretary Emeri- 
tus, Past Grand Master Emery R. Gibson, and from the 
present Grand Secretary. 



76 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

George W. MeRae is the representative of the Grand 
Lodge of Utah near the Grand Lodge of Canada but no 
representative of Canada near Utah is recorded. 

The Committee on Charity reported the expenditure of a 
couple of small sums on benevolence. The Board of Trustees 
reports cash investments of over $17,500.00, Total funds 
accounted for are $102,920.05, an increase of over $7,000.00. 

The Committee on Necrology presented a report en- 
titled "Branded" and referred to physical, mental and spirit- 
ual features. 

The Grand Orator, Bro. Franklin Riter, delivered a 
powerful address on, "The Impact of Social, Political and 
Economic Forces on National Sovereignty." 

The Committee on Fraternal Relations recommended 
recognition of the Grand Lodge of Japan. The Committee 
on Masonic Education is active and asked for an appropriation 
of $750.00 for the year. 

At the end of the Proceedings the members of the 
various constituent Lodges are listed. The new Grand 
Master, Charles Leander Prisk and his officers were duly 
installed.

Grand Master, 1958-1960— M.W. Bro. F. M. Brownell 

Lodges, 103. Membership, 18,307. Loss, 132. 

"The losing trend continues (in 1958 it was 123) and it 
is hard to understand why, unless the reason may be found 
in ian indifferent leadership dn too many Lodges." Ten 
Lodges did no work whatever in the third degree. May we 
suggest that, almost everywhere, too many Masters prize the 
honour but neglect the responsibility? 

In his Address the Grand Master made what many of 
us would consider a revolutionary suggestion — well meant, 
of course, but not often heard. Speaking of the losses in 
membership, he said, "As soon as you return to your homes 
I strongly recommend that the Masters and Wardens make 
a survey of your Lodge's jurisdiction, compile a list of all 
the fine men in your community who are not members of 
the Craft, you will be amazed. . . . After you have this list, 
and be sure it comprises good men, put some good Masonic 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 77 

literature in their hands, tell them a goodly bit of our 
charities, our motive and our ideals. Give them a copy of 
our booklet entitled 'What is Freemasonry?' Thus you 
will arouse a man's interest that he may ask for a petition." 
If this is not solicitation, how close is it? 

The Grand Lecturer delivered a fine address in which 
he reminded his hearers that the art of conversation and the 
art of letter-writing have been lost in our mad rush through 
life and that we should take time for thinking and for 
retrospect. 

The Grand Master was not satisfied with the attendance 
at the district meetings and asked that the Master and the 
Wardens of each Lodge consider themselves a special com- 
mittee to ensure greatly improved attendance. One of his 
pet projects was the establishment of Lodges of Instruction, 
the success of which has been only moderate because the 
deputies did not make as much use of the Committee on 
Masonic Education as they might have done. The average 
attendance was 30. He hoped for better success in the 
second year. He recommended also an increase in the per 
capita tax from $1.00 to $1.50 plus a 50-cent per capita for 
charity and another 50-cent levy for temple repair for the 
next two years. The Committee did not fully approve but 
recommended a slight variation. 

The Grand Lodge Library has been at a standstill for 
some time, partly on account of uncertainty regarding the 
ultimate location of the Grand Lodge offices. The Com- 
mittee on the Grand Master's Address reported, in part: 
"Our Grand Master has made some very realistic suggestions. 
In an era of intense competition, it is patent folly to assume 
that we can fold our hands and wait while the youth comes 
knocking for admission at our tiled doors. The light of 
Masonry, bright as it is, should not be hidden undler a 
bushel. While no one would recommend a 'drive' for mem- 
bers to alter the tide of shrinking membership, there is not 
even an unwritten law against some intelligent strategy." 
We have heard of "strategy" at times. 

The Committee on Masonic Education proposes to 
adopt the Ohio system which it is prepared to outline in 
detail at the district meetings.

The volume opens with an interesting, though brief, 
sketch of the organization of Grand Lodge from 1777. The 



78 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

Grand Secretary detects a trend downward among the larger 
Dodges in the metropolitan area because the population is 
moving gradually to the suburbs; he is alarmed that the 
death rate increases more rapidly than does the number of 
additions; and he notes that the problem of low attendance at 
lodge meetings needs a great deal of attention. He suggests 
that Masonic Education is one of the answers to this problem. 

Reporting on Masonic Education, the Committee states 
that "any programme of education is a continuing project. 
It is ever changing to meet the needs of a changing world. 
The field is so large, the need so great, the funds so limited, 
the area so widespread, and at times the co-operation of 
those who have the greater need so disappointing, that we 
must encourage by even the least constructive effort." It is 
suggested that the Masters' and Wardens' Associations would 
be the ideal vehicle for Masonic Education. 

There is a Committee on Higher Education which assists 
college students with bursaries, and there has been for a 
year a Committee on the True Name of the Grand Lodge 
which was to ascertain "by patient research the basis for 
numerous changes in the name of our Grand Lodge." It was 
called at one time "Free and Accepted Masons"; again, 
"Ancient York Masons"; and "Ancient, Free and Accepted 
Masons." The task is much greater than at first it seemed 
to be; it will involve much correspondence with Garnd 
Secretaries; so far. the Committee "has been unable to find 
any reason why the word, 'ancient' appears in the Grand 
Lodge name; but hopes to make a complete report in 1960. 

Some unusual questions were asked by Lodges. One 
was. "Is a man who has lost the Irbtle finger of his right 
hand eligible to petition a Lodge?" "He is not." Another 
was, "Is a man who has lost the thumb second and third 
fingers of his left hand eligible to petition a Lodge?" "He 
is." 

The Committee on Masonic Education (with a longer 
name) says that Masters "are aware that more programmes 
of a non-ritualistic nature must be presented at their meet- 
ings if they are to succeed in capturing and holding the 
interest" of both new and older brethren. So the Committee 
has begun distribution of service letters, brochures, and 
recorded speeches. (Therip must surely be for meetings where 
there is no degree work.) 

Small Lodges are having a tough time. Says the Grand 
Master, "Populations are static or dwindling. Young men 
are moving to larger communities. These conditions have 
reduced some of our Lodges to mere existence." Meetings 
are not held regularly and some charters should be "lifted." 
Yet he ends on a brighter note, "The history of another year 
in the long and glorious life of this Grand Lodge will soon 
be placed in its archives".

(15 of these Lodges are in Alaska.) 

The Grand Master submitted a detailed report of his 
varied activities, among them a long list of "permissions 
granted for return of fees". A father and two sons petitioned 
for admission the same evening; one son was rejected and, 
on demand, the fees were returned to the father and the 
other son, both of whom had been accepted. A petitioner 
passed away prior to balloting and the fee was returned to 
his widow. Another applicant was committed to a mental 
institution before being investigated and still another was 
advised by his church that its communicants were prohibited 
from becoming members of the Masonic Order. 

In one case the Committee on Jurisprudence disapproved 
of the Grand Master's liberality in authorizing a return of 
fees. In our country no one has ever heard of official dis- 
approval of any action of a Grand Master. The same Com- 
mittee also disapproved of the Grand Master's decision to 
authorize a Masonic funeral for a brother who. though he 
had been given the third degree, had not oas r ed his profic- 
iencv examination.. There were no cases for the Committee 
on Grievances and Appeals and the Committee on Charity 
had no appeals for relief or charity. Apparently, a happy 
situation in each case! One Lodge was refused permission 
to elect as an Honorary Past Master a Senior Warden who 
was no longer living. 

Past Grand Master Winkels, the Reviewer, submits a 
fine Foreword and then goes on to make an interesting 
suggestion. He says that something should be done about 
the trend to organize and promote clubs and other organiz- 
ations which require membership in a regular Masonic Lodge 
as a prerequisite for membership. To offset this trend he 
suggests a "stepped -up" programme of Masonic Education 
and as part of such a programme he offers the Reviews 
which, he says, are authoritative, concise, comprehensive and 
easily read in a minimum of time. His own Reviews are 
models. 

Like many other Grand Lodg-es in the United States, 
this one has a Committee on Public School Education. This 
Committee urges members of Lodges to study educational 



80 GRAND LCDGE OF CANADA 

issues; to serve on school committees; and to offer them- 
selves as candidates for school boards. 

Of course, after due preparation and expert organization, 
the Centennial Celebration was a great success. One special 
feature being' the sermon preached by our own Past Grand 
Master, the Most Reverend and Most Worshipful Archbishop 
William L. Wright, whose topic was "The Relevance of 
Masonry To-day," and who dealt eloquently with the develop- 
ment of character under three headings — Reverance, Integrity, 
Religious- Conviction.

"The Masonic Social Welfare Management" Committee 
is instructed, according to its constitution, (a) to provide 
Christmas cheer to children in institutions and hospitals; 

(b) to conduct an annual Christmas paity for children; and 

(c) to provide scholarships and arrange for assistance in 
educational matters for children of Freemasons. The Com- 
mittee's funds are to be derived from voluntary subscriptions 
and donations by individual Masons and Masonic bodies; from 
legacies: and from special festivals and any other approved 
means that may be devised. There is a Widows, Orphans, 
and Aged Masons' Fund. 

Two new Lodges were established. The Grand Master 
sent out a questionnaire asking each Lodge for the number 
of country members; the average attendance at meetings; 
what steps are taken to interest those who do not attend; 
the nature of any meetings other than the regular meetings; 
what Masonic books or journals are made available to mem- 
bers; what is done in the way of general Masonic Education; 
in what church services does the Lodge participate: what 
social functions are arranged? The answers to these questions 
would surely provide valuable information and the questions 
themselves wouM. no doubt, arouse interest and action in 
many of the Lodges. 

"For some considerable time a Committee of the Board 
has been very concerned at the nature of the lectures given 
in the Lodge of Research and has examined those given 
more recently. Some of these are of a controversial nature 
and would be quite unsuitable for use in Craft Lodges." This 
quotation is from the Report of the Board of General Pur-

poses which goes on to say that the Lodge of Research is 
not an agency of Grand Lodge and is not to be regarded 
as a source of authorative statements. Some of the lectures 
are of considerable interest academically but are of no sign- 
ificance in a Craft atmosphere and a warning has been issued 
that religious and theological topics must be avoided. For 
example, three lectures have, quite properly, been banned; 
these were, (a) "The Literary Background of the V.S.L."; 
(b) "The First Masonic Response"; and (c) "An Archaeolog- 
ical Confirmation of the V.S.L." (This is a significant 
situation which will be of interest in many Grand Jurisdic- 
tions.) 

How careful many Grand Lodges are regarding attire 
worn at lodge meetings! Here is the recommendation. 
"Either full evening dress (with white bow tie and white 
waistcoat) or dinner jacket (with black bow tie) shall be 
worn by every brother attending a lodge meeting. The apron 
shall be worn outside the coat, except when full evening 
dress is worn. White gloves are to be worn by all brethren 
except when conditions are oppressive (between December 
1st and April 30th)". Then there is a special concession to 
Lodges north of the 26th parallel. 

A proposal to establish a Masonic Residential Home 
was rejected by the Lodges — 73 were in favour; 135 against; 
96, no response.

The Grand Master stated, in his Address, that he had 
found the Craft in West Virginia to be in excellent condition. 
The Lodges had been active, he said, in conferring degrees 
and the members were showing a keen interest in Masonic 
matters. The Masonic Home he had found to be beautiful, 
well-equipped and efficiently managed. 

In considering the future of the Masonic Home, (in which 
there were 52 residents), whether it should be expanded or 
not, a special committee reported, in part, as follows: "We 
must always consider the possibility, and we believe it to be 
a real possibility, that, with rapid socialization of our 
economy, there may come a time in the not too distant future 
when the operation of a Masonic Home of any kind might 
not be desirable or necessary." The Committee decided 



82 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

against expansion for the reason, as well as that just given, 
that Grand Lodge should not impose any additional financial 
burdens on the constituent Lodges because "they are finding 
it increasingly difficult to operate their own affairs within 
their present dues structure." 

The Grand Lecturer found that, particularly in some of 
the smaller and more isolated Lodges, the lack of knowledge 
of the ritual, on the part of the officers, had produced an 
unfortunate situation. He also noted that the officers of a 
few Lodges were "somewhat lax and slothful in their attend- 
ance at schools of instruction." It was his unpleasant duty, 
during the year, to drop two Deputies "for good and abundant 
reasons." 

From the report of the Committee on Foreign Corres- 
pondence, which reviewed our Proceedings of 1958 very fully, 
the following quotation is taken. "Freemasonry continues 
its onward march throughout the Free World. New Grand 
Lodges and new District Grand Lodges are being constituted. 
Grand Lodges grew and prospered. The Craft enjoys peace 
and harmony." The Chairman, M.W. Bro. H. Aherns, reviewed 
the Proceedings of 70 Grand Jurisdictions and did the work 
well. 

A new decree was issued. "It shall be a Masonic offence 
for any Lodge or any Committee, officer, or member thereof, 
to circularize by letter, petition or other form of publication 
other Lodges or officers or members of other Lodges in this 
Grand Jurisdiction proposing or advocating any amendments, 
repeal or enactment of laws, rules, or regulations of this 
Grand Lodge, without securing a dispensation for such pur- 
pose from the Grand Master." (How important this is. 
Without such restraint, chaos could result. We have never 
known such circularization to happen here.) 

There is a Committee on Work which reported that "the 
programme for improving the ritual in all the Lodges by 
holding more schools of instruction and practice sessions was 
continued throughout the year and we are pleased with the 
widespread knowledge of the ritual throughout the state." 

The Grand Lodge assessment of $1.15 per member was 
continued for the following year. Operation of the Masonic 
Home cost $91,138.12.

In his Address the Grand Master announced that the one 
project on which he would concentrate and for which he hoped 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 83 

to have the approval of Grand Lodge would be the raising 
of a large endowment fund for the Masonic Home. Naturally, 
then, this was the principal order of business. 

The Grand Master made some interesting decisions. A 
firm of photographers in Michigan furnished postal cards 
to Masters and Secretaries and asked that these be sent 
to all members of Lodges, soliciting business. No Secretary 
furnished this firm with a list of members and the Grand 
Master decided that there was "no violation." (How far 
could this sort of device go?). The Committee disagreed 
with the Grand Master. A Lodge received a petition from 
the manager of a supermarket which sells the usual grocery 
staples and also beer in packages for consumption off the 
premises. The Grand Master ruled that this petition could 
be received because the regulation is that "no Lodge in this 
jurisdiction shall receive or act upon a petition from a person 
engaged in keeping a tavern or saloon where intoxicating 
liquor to be used as a beverage is consumed on the premises 
nor from any person employed therein." Such a rule has not, 
we think, ever been considered in Ontario. "Ours not to 
reason why: ours not to make renlv"; ours just to smile and 
sigh. One Lodge submitted a formal resolution to Grand 
Lodge asking for the repeal of the existing liquor regulation 
and tV» restoration of the law thereon as it existed prior 
to 1958. 

There is a Committee on Masonic Historv and Research 
and also an active Committee on Masonic Education. The 
latter prenared and distributed four leaflets: "Seeking Light" 
for the elected candidate: "LieM in Masonrv" for the E.A.; 
"More Light in Masonry" for the F.C.; and "Further Light 
in Masonry" for the M.M. It is proposed that members of 
the Committtee be available to hold discussion groups of 
interested Lodges anywhere in the state. 

An interesting ruling, which bears on a question some- 
times discussed, is that "the Masonic apron shall be worn 
in the orescribed manner over the suit jacket or outer dress 
at all Communications of a Lodge". 

In the Reviews aopears this from Illinois whose Grand 
Master savs that 12 Lodges in that state have consolidated 
into 6 and that 200 more should be consolidated. He goes 
on to sav, "Many of our Lodges have lost the essentials of 
progressive lodge operation. Poor attendance, insufficient 
income, lack of desire on the part of officers to learn their 
work are clearly evident in many cases." 

The Grand Lecturer in Wisconsin is a teacher who, 
working in conjunction with the Committee on Masonic 
Education handles the Schools of Instruction in a brilliant 
manner and is producing excellent results.

Several proposed amendments to the Code (or, as we 
would say, the Constitution) were not adopted. One of these 
provided that the Grand Lecturer should be made Chief 
Instructor and Custodian of The Work in addition to his 
regular duties. Two Lodges (the names are given) did not 
comply with the Grand Master's proclamation to the effect 
that George Washington's Masonic Birthday must be observed 
at the regular meeting nearest to November 4th, 1958. 
Provision was made for printing 1,000 copies of the second 
volume of Grand Lodge's History. An appeal came from 
Mexico, asking for financial relief for Masons in flooded 
districts but the Masonic Service Association found that the 
Supreme Council of Mexico did not approve of the appeal 
because that Council was providing relief. 

The Grand Master found, when he attended a meeting 
of the Masonic Education Council, that several Lodges had 
not appointed committees and were doing nothing about 
Masonic Education. He sent out a questionnaire to which 
the reply usually was that there was so much degree work 
there was no time for education. (How often we used to 
hear that excuse!) Now nearly all the Lodges have taken 
appropriate action. 

As the cost of printing the Proceedings had increased 
from $5.25 per page in 1957 to $5.50 per page in 1958, the 
Grand Master recommended reducing the size by omitting 
several items, which he listed, but his proposal was not 
adopted. A charter was issued to Capital Lodge No. 54 which 
had been under dispensation. 

It was proposed, but the proposal was not adopted, that 
a Master Mason must pass the proficiency examination before 
he could vote in his own Lodge; nor could he be presented 
with a Bible until he passed. There is great stress, in many 
Grand Lodges, on the necessity for proficiency. We, in 
Ontario, are not as thorough in this respect as are many of 
our neighbours. 

The Director of Masonic Education recommends a short 
programme at every lodge meeting, supplemented by two 
"big programmes" during the year. He suggests that every 
Senior Warden should serve for a year on the Masonic 
Education Committee and he recommends that every Master 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 85 

Mason should subscribe (60 cents per year) for "The Short 
Talk Bulletin." His report is most interesting. 

There was a strong' movement for a change in the time 
of election in constituent Lodges from December to June 
but the proposal was defeated by a vote of 83 against and 
only 50 votes in favour. 

The new Grand Master wonders how he can possibly 
make all the visitations expected of him or accept all the 
invitations he will receive. "Why can't a plan be worked 
out", he asks, "by which our Grand Secretary or others of 
Grand Lodge can make these visits and not at their own 
expense?" If he can work out such a plan, we shall be 
most interested to hear about it. In our Grand Lodge, no 
one can take the place of the Grand Master himself at any 
important function. 



APPENDIX "B" 

Address delivered by M.W. Bro. Dr. Thomas S. Roy, 

at the Grand Master's Banquet held in the Royal 

York Hotel, Toromto, Ontario, on Wednesday evening 

July 20th, 1960. 

M. WOR. BRO. T. H. SIMPSON: 

Most Worshipful Grand Master, Distinguished Brethren 
and Guests, and Brethren all: Those of us who were privi- 
ledged to be in attendance at the Grand Lodge Session to-day 
heard a good deal about the small attendance that takes place 
in many of the Masonic gatherings not only in this Jurisdic- 
tion but in the Jurisdictions of the United States, and it 
gives us all who are attending some cause for thought. 

I couldn't help thinking as I listened to those remarks, 
how do we explain this magnificent attendance to-day at our 
Grand Lodge. And to-night one wonders at that condition 
when we have here such a magnificent gathering — over 1,400 
brethren — at this banquet. 

I am going to suggest to you that the reason for this 
magnificent gathering here tonight is the calibre of speaker, 
whom we have brought here to address us, and that this 
Grand Master's Banquet is the occasion for bringing so many 
of our brethren to our Grand Lodge gatherings. 

Our guest speaker this evening is a very distinguished 1 
brother from the United States. He has been here before. 
He is M. Wor. Bro. Dr. Thomas S. Roy, Past Grand Master 
of the Grand Lodge of Massachusetts. It is not his first 
occasion to be among us. He was here eight years ago 
to-night on the 16th of July, 1952, and on that occasion I 
had the great privilege of introducing him. He has come 
back to speak to us again this evening. On that occasion 
he spoke on "The Romance of Freemasonry". I am sure 
that his address to-night will be just as good — if not better — 
because I am satisfied that he is mellowing with age. 
( Laughter) . 

Now, brethren, he is a Canadian, strange as it may 
seem. He was born in New Brunswick, educated in Acadia 
University in Nova Scotia, but finished his theological train- 
ing in Newtonville, Massachusetts, at the Theological Train- 
ing Institute there. He had some difficulty at first, it seems, 
flitting back and forth across the border to decide ultimately 
where he would cast in his lot. He came back to Digby, 
Nova Scotia, for a while, went back into the States for a 
while, then he landed over in London, Ontario, where he had 
a charge for some considerable time. But ultimately he 
seems to have been lui'ed back to the United States. 



APPENDIX "B" 2 

He went to Brockton, Massachusetts, then took a charge 
some twenty-five or thirty years ago at Worcester, Mas- 
sachusetts, and there he remained until he retired some five 
or six years ago. 

He joined the Masonic Craft in 1912 while he was in 
Nova Scotia, but in every centre where he located in the 
interval, he was biting in here and biting in there and he 
seemed to love the Craft. He became a very active Mason 
and eventually the Grand Master of The Grand Lodge of 
Massachusetts in 1952. 

He is an authority on Masonic Ritual and the teachings 
of Masonry; he is a splendid speaker, widely known through- 
out the United States and in certain parts of Canada, is one 
of the finest exponents of Freemasonry. 

Since retiring as Grand Master of Massachusetts he, for 
some years, was the Executive Secretary of the Grand 
Masters' Conference of North America — a very fine Organiz- 
ation. That position he held until a few short years ago. 
He is now the Secretary of the Commission on Information 
for Recognition in that Conference of Grand Masters. 

It is my very creat pleasure, brethren, to present to you 
Most Worshipful Brother Dr. Thomas S. Roy, whose home 
now is in Worcester, Massachusetts . . . Bro. Roy. (Applause). 

M. WOR. BRO. DR. THOMAS S. ROY: 

Most Worshipful Grand Master, Most Worshipful Brother 
Simpson, Distinguished Guests — particularly my own Grand 
Master, Most Worshipful Brother Eaton of Massachusetts: 
Thank you very much, Bro. Simpson, for that very flattering 
introduction — I am quite sure that I can't live up to it. 
I like one thing he said, and that is. that I was mellowing 
with age. Considering my age, I ought to be very mellow. 
(Laughter). 

I heard the other day of a man who said he'd been 
married so long that he felt as though he had been poured 
in captivity. (Laughter) I have been talking so long to 
various audiences and congregations, for fifty-three years 
now, that I ought to be u~ed to it. But perhaps some of the 
brethren here who have been in a similar situation will know 
what I mean, when I say I'd be very happy to change places 
with anybody in the room right now. 

I deem it an exceedingly great honour to be invited to 
come here and address this magnificent audience again. I 
don't know just what my relationship is to this Grand Lodge, 
but inasmuch as I was, fortv years ago, a. member of Tuscan 
Lodge in London and therefore had allegiance to this Grand 



3 APPENDIX "B" 

Lodge, I claim the right to say that I am very glad to be 
back home again. 

I don't want my relationship to be as confused as a 
minister was one day when he was called upon suddenly to 
go to the cemetery and perform a committal service. He 
had not been there long enough to ask all of the questions 
he should have, and so when he got to that part of the 
service where he should have said either "departed brother" 
or "departed sister" he suddenly remembered that he didn't 
know whether he was burying a man or a woman. So he 
turned to a man who was alongside of him and said "brother 
or sister?" — He said "cousin." (Laughter). 

I am very glad to be here while my good friend, your 
Grand Master, Most Worshipful Brother Pitts, is Grand 
Master of this Grand Lodge. I have known him for some years 
now. Our paths have crossed as Ave have been visiting other 
Jurisdictions, Annual Communications, and otherwise. He's 
always good company, and because we happen to have been 
born in the same province of New Brunswick, I have always 
been particularly proud as I have heard the rafters ring 
with applause because of the significant message that he has 
brought to these other Grand Lodges. I congratulate him 
upon the successful year he has had, and certainly this Grand 
Lodge has been a success during the year now being brought 
to completion. 

Freemasonry is an inexhaustible subject. "Age cannot 
wither it nor custom stale its infinite variety" — we can say 
that about Freemasonry. I suppose that's the reason I 
keep talking about it, that I come to you to-night to try 
to talk to vou about "Freemasonry in our time." But I 
w r ant it perfectly understood, however, that I do not consider 
that I have explored the vast reaches of Freemasonry, am 
qualified to speak about it or have the information that is 
adequate to talk upon such a subject. Indeed I am a little 
bit afraid of your reaction, I'm afraid it may be as mine 
was one evening when I was watching and listening to 
Bishop Sheen on television — I find he is a very interesting 
character to listen to. 

Now that night he was talking about taxes and in the 
course of his remarks he said that taxes were getting to be 
a very heavy burden upon men. He said it is getting to be 
so that a man finds it very difficult to support both a wife 
and a government. Without thinking I said to mv wife 
"I wish I knew as little as he does about both of those 
subjects." (Lausrhter). I was in hot water for a few minutes 
but got out of it beautifully by saying she knew I meant 
only the half of it. (Laughter). 

When we consider this subject of Freemasonry in our 
time, we are faced with a searching and embarrassing 



APPENDIX "B" 4 

question as to whether or not Freemasonry has what it 
takes to be a constructive force in the world in which we 
are living to-day in this our time. If that question is 
asked us, the answer is naturally in the affirmative. I 
believe it is equal to the demands that are being made 
upon us, first of all because of its universal quality and that 
I think, is of major importance. 

When I was thinking about this, I came across the 
writings of a very distinguished Mason, perhaps the most 
distinguished Masonic scholar of our time, Rt. Wor. Bro. 
Roscoe Pound, who was for a very long: time the well-known 
Dean of Harvard Law School. He was a Past Deputy Grand 
Master of Massachusetts. He was an Hon. Past Grand 
Master of The Grand Lodge of Nebrask and. incidentally, 
is going to be ninety years of age this year. 

Now in his writings I found these words: "That we, 
of all men — meaning we Masons — owe it to ourselves and to 
the world to be universal in spirit." Universality is the 
one lesson that the world is learning and must learn. But, 
he said, "we Masons should be on the front bench of the 
world's school, setting an example to our more backward 
fellows." He says "wherever in the world there is a Lodge 
of Masons" and please, brethren, don't put that a way out 
on the periphery of Freemasonry but localize it right in 
your own lodge. "Wherever in the w T orld there is a Lodge 
of Masons there should be a focus of civilization, a centre 
of the idea of universality radiating reason to put down 
prejudice and advance justice between the peoples, and be- 
tween classes, and making for the peace and harmony and 
civilization that should prevail in this great lodge of the 
w^orld." I think Roscoe Pound was right because it would be 
impossible for me or anybody else to exaggerate the import- 
ance of this universality that we believe is one of the 
qualities of Freemasonry. 

As most men who are outside the Craft think of our 
degrees, the probability is that they think of them as in- 
volving a ritual designed for the purpose of impressing the 
candidate upon his initiation, but with no particular rele- 
vance to the life situations that that individual is going to 
have to face; a ritual that is of particular interest to Masons 
but of no interest to other men. Nothing could be further 
from the truth. Our ritual is univei-sally true, true for all 
men at all times, in all circumstances. 

One of the great philosophers of the past was Emannuel 
Kant, a man who lived in Germany some 200 years aeo. I 
don't pretend to have read his philosophy and understand him, 
but I have been very much intrigued by the fact that he 
reduced a good deal of his philosophv to what has been called 
a categorical imperative, 'categorical' meaning there can' 



5 APPENDIX "B" 

be no exceptions and no conditions, and it goes something 
like this: "Act as if the maxim of thy -will were to become 
by thy adopting it, a universal law of nature." In other 
words, act as if that act of yours compelled everybody in 
the world to imitate you, act in such fashion that if every- 
body acted in the same way it would be both safe and 
beneficial for the world in which Ave are living. 

Freemasonry conforms to that categorical imperative 
because what we proclaim as ideal, what we teach as practical 
can be safely universalized, that is if we believe all men 
practice the principles of Freemasonry, we would have pretty 
much an ideal world here on earth. 

Now we find that this idea of universality finds some 
confiimation of what mieht be called universal appeal of 
Freemasonry. It appeals to men of all races, of all tongues, 
of all colours, of all classes and of all faiths. 

Freemasonry girdles the earth. There isn't a country 
where men are free that you will not find Freemasonry — in 
some cases it's the only unifying force in the country. For 
example, there is the Grand Lodge of the State of Israel 
and I am told that one of the Constituent Lodges of that 
Grand Lodge is composed entirely of Arabs, that is, there is 
one place in Israel where Arab and Jew can sit together in 
the fellowship that transcends the bitter political differences 
■that have torn the whole of the Near East to shreds. In all 
countries in the world we discover that men find Freemasonry 
the response to their needs for fellowship and brotherhood. 

Freemasonry transcends the differences in classes. I 
have heard there is a very distinguished brother who is 
the Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of England, the Earl 
of Scarbrough, a man of great hereditary rank, a man who 
is the Queen's Chamberlain and occupies one of the most 
important positions in England, and it's difficult thinking 
of him as being any closer to the top than he is. I think 
of the Archbishop of Canterbury, the great ecclesiastic of 
England, who was at one time the Grand Chaplain of the 
Grand Lodge of England, and I know that deep down at the 
bottom of the social scale there are humble cottagers in 
Enerland in between, men of all classes who find satisfactory 
relationship or reality — if vou like — in Freemasonry, that is, 
in this universality of Freemasonry that cuts across all 
classes. 

The late Theodoi-e Roosevelt, former President of the 
United States, used to go to Oyster Bay occasionally and he 
visited his Lodge in Oyster Bav occasionally, and one time 
he discovered that the Master of the Lod?e was his gardener, 
so that Theodore Roosevelt, the President of the United 
States, while in the Lodge, was ruled over by his gardener. 



APPENDIX "B" 6 

But, more significant, gardener and president were one — all 
classes obliterated in Freemasonry. 

We discover that there is this universality that cuts 
across all classes and makes men one. 

Now let me come to something that is perhaps a little 
more difficult to discuss. I said a few minutes ago that 
Freemasonry appeals to men of all faiths; this may be 
questioned — I don't think that it can be successfully challeng- 
ed. I know as well as you do that Freemasonry in the 
English-speaking world is considered by most people as a 
protestant institution. Of course we have a great many 
Jewish brethren, but preponderantly it is a protestant in- 
stitution. But more significant is the fact that there are 
a good many people in Freemasonry — and out of it — who 
think that there is something: in Freemasonry that is in- 
herently repugnant to those of other faiths — that is not true, 
when you get back to the Craft Lodges where men were 
Masons because they were working at a trade as masons. 

You go back generations, if not centuries before the < 
Reformation, with the result that every member of a Masonic 
Lodge in those days was a Roman Catholic. Now when you 
come to the time of what is called the Revival of Free- 
masonry, the organization of the Grand Lodge of England 
in 1717. what men do not know — as they should know — is 
that there were as many Catholics as Protestants who were 
members of the Craft at that time. 

I am particularly proud of the fact, because it's an 
indication of the appeal, the universal appeal of Freemasonry, 
I am particularly proud of the fact that my distinguished 
predecessor in Massachusetts, Henry Price, the first Pro- 
vincial Grand Master in New England, was appointed Prov- 
incial Grand Master and the warrant or charter that con- 
tained that appointment was drawn up under the authority 
of Anthony Brown — Lord Montague — Grand Master of the 
Grand Lodge of England — Anthony Brown was a Roman 
Catholic. 

It's rather interesting when you come to contemplate 
it that what we call regularly constituted Freemasonry was 
launched in New England by a man of that particular faith. 

The greatest modern patriot Ireland has known was 
Daniel O'Connell. Daniel O'Connell was the Master of a 
Masonic Lodge in Ireland, as a matter of fact he was the 
Master of two Masonic Lodges at different times in Ireland, 
and there were as many men of his faith as of ours in 
Masonic Lodges in Ireland at that particular time, and I am 
told that there were Lodges that were composed almost 
exclusively of men who were clergymen of that faith. 



7 APPENDIX "B" 

Now the ritual, the principles, everything that appeals to 
Freemasonry was just the same in those days in Ireland as 
it is to-day, and it is just the same to-day as it was then. 
What I am trying to bring out is that there isn't anything 
that is inherently repugnant in Freemasonry to any faith 
and that the men — the best consciences of every country, of 
every faith will find in Freemasonry that to which they can 
respond. 

Now when we ask ouselves the question why is it that 
Freemasonry has universal appeal, the answer is very simple, 
it's because the emphasis is upon basic realities. We are 
interested in men for their own sake, not because a man 
occupies a particular position, not because of his class, not 
because of his scholastic achievement, not because of financial 
opulence — we are interested in him just because he is a man, 
because, you see, if we were interested in them because of 
these things that I have .mentioned, then we ought to be 
realistic enough to see and honest enough to acknowledge 
that we are interested in those men for what they can do 
for the Craft — and not what the Craft can do for them. In 
other words we are using those men as means to an end 
instead of using men as ends in themselves. Let me say that 
whether you find it in Russia, or in any degree in Canada 
or the United States, the ultimate blasphemy that is com- 
mitted against man is using a man as a means to an end. 
and not as an end in himself. We are interested in men for 
what they are and not because of the position that they 
occupy, what we can do for them, not what they can do for 
us. It doesn't make any difference how high a man is in 
his position in the world, we, as Freemasons, say that when 
he becomes a Freemason he stands a bit taller, regardless of 
of his height up to that particular point. 

Now Freemasonry, when we come to this matter of 
faith, has its universal' appeal because its emphasis is upon 
basic reality in faith, that is, we are not interested in making 
demands upon men as to loyalty, a creed or to a ritual; we 
are not interested in making demands that are not inherent 
realities of religion. In this particular, Freemasonry is a 
completely tolerant organization. This is one fellowship in 
which we do not question the sincerity of a man's faith be- 
cause its formulation differs from others. Why should I 
say that my brother is wrong because he does not find his 
faith within the doctrines and limitations within which I find 
mine ? How can I measure the spiritual dimensions of any 
man in this room, or out yonder in the world? What right 
have I to be suspicious of his faith because of the fact that 
I think I can measure those dimensions? I do not consider 
that I have any right whatever to measure the mind or the 
soul of a man bv the limiting formulae, if you will, by which 
I find my own faith. 



APPENDIX "B" 8 

Now this, of course, means this: Provided always that 
the faith enables him to find his light at the level of the 
best of which he is capable in character, and enables him to 
find his light, nevertheless, in the best of which he is capable 
in his relations with his fellowmen. 

v 

Also, let me say that this does not mean that we are 
opposed to. or sympathetic to, any expression of religion. 
We find ourselves being constantly branded, and by organiz- 
ations within our own protestantism. Brethren, I know what 
I am talking about, I have read enough — we are being 
constantly branded as un-Christian because we do not contain 
the name of the founder of our Christian religion within our 
ritual. But with the exception of our penalties, shall I say, 
and I don't think any thinking Mason would consider for a 
minute that they are Christian — but with the exception of 
those penalties, I challenge any man to find that within our 
philosophy, that within our teachings, within our principles, 
within our spirit or within our official acts, that which is 
un-Christian. We do not believe that we are honouring the 
founder of that faith by simply including His name in our 
ritual, but rather by repeating this .man when conducting 
our lives in the spirit He manifested to the world. 

Freemasonry is for our times — Freemasonry is for this 
time — it has that which enables it to be a constructive force 
in the life of the world. And I believe that Freemasonry 
has that which is needed in this day because of the uni- 
versal obligation. It's an obligation that has no limitations 
either as to time, place, or circumstances; it's an obligation 
that is equally binding on a Mason whether he's in Toronto, 
Taooma. Karachi, or whether he's in Kokomo — that is not 
the obligation that we take at the altar, but the obligation 
to live affirmatively, positively, proclaiming, not only openly 
but vigorously and emphatically — and sometimes even ag- 
gressively — the truths that belong to Freemasonry. That is 
what I mean when I say the universal obligation of Free- 
masonry is to live affirmatively. 

We happen to be living in the day of denials — if you 
don't believe it, then you don't listen as much as I do as 
to what came out of Los Angeles last week. (Laughter). 
We live in a day of denials, p day of contradictions, a day of 
conflicting ideologies, and sometimes we get the idea that 
the only way we can develop our own strength is by the 
vehemence of our denunciation of that with which we dis- 
agree. We have a little bit of the spirit of Hitler in us, 
because Hitler believed that he had to generate and develop 
a good healthy bitter hatred of some group or some in- 
stitution in order to develop his own strength. 

A number of years ago I was in England and I was 
coming back by boat. We sailed from Liverpool, dropped 



9 APPENDIX "B" 

anchor outside Belfast, took aboard some passengers. Among 
those who came aboard were a couple of very fine young men 
from the North of Ireland. It was a good voyage, long days, 
days of calm seas and sunshine, and we sat out on deck and 
chatted a good deal. 

One day one of those young men asked me if I had 
been in Ireland. I said I had. Before I left Ireland I'd been 
from Cork to Deny, as a matter of fact I'd had a very 
interesting experience of being on the walls of Londonderry, 
where I watched the organization of the parade that took 
place that day in Londonderry because they were actually 
celebrating the Battle of the Boyne — last week I understand 
was the 270th Anniversary of the Battle of the Boyne. 

Then one of these young men told me the very interest- 
ing story of something that takes place eveiy year where 
they celebrate somewhere near his home, where they cele- 
brate the Battle of the Boyne, and their drummers get very 
enthusiastic: they beat that big brass drum and they become 
so engrossed in what they are doinsr that they don't know 
they are hitting the wooden edges around the drumhead with 
their wrists. He said after awhile the skin on the wrists 
will break; then the blood will flow, and the more the blood 
flows the more frenzied they become, the harder they beat 
the dram. Then after awhile he said the hands, the arms, 
the whole drumhead is a gory mess. He said, "do ya know 
what thev're thinkin' when they're doin' that? They're 
thinkin' they're knocking hell out of the Pope." (Laughter). 
I was amused tooo. 

But there is something in that that is too indicative of 
too much that is going on in the world that isn't funny. It's 
a tragic thing, a tragic waste of both time and energy to be 
.merely against something, and it's pathetic and wasteful 
to hate, because hatred always comes back upon the one that 
hated. 

We, of course, in our lives, many of us as we go along 
as Masons, will discover that there are those who are saying 
that Freemasonry is anti-this, it's anti-something else. Free- 
masonry has no hates. We are interested in one thing only, 
and that is the positive proclamation of the things in which 
we believe. I like the way that Archibald McLeish put it one 
time when he said that people who are real to themselves 
when they were for something, cannot continue to be real to 
themselves when they suddenly discover that they are merely 
against something — you find too much of that today. We are 
cursing Communism, and God knows it needs to be cursed, but 
the one thing that we will not leam is that you can't curse 
Communism out of existence — something positive must be done. 

I heard one of the Senators the other night allude to the 
fact that 90% of the people of the world go to bed hungry 



APPENDIX "B" 10 

every night. His proportion may be wrong, but cut it down 
40% and that would mean that a billion and a half people go 
to bed hungry every night — and you've got a horrible situ- 
ation — and then you understand why it is that we have 
difficulty killing Communism throughout the world. It's a 
symbol of one of the great evils in the world that are mani- 
fested in that particular way. 

I like the way Stanley Jones put it when he said, 
"there's only one way to beat the Communists and that is 
to beat them to it." And we have to reveal that we are at 
once more humane and more compassionate in the fact of 
these needs, that democracy is swifter and more efficient 
in meeting the needs if we are to cope with Communism 
to-day. We have to deal positively if we are going to ac- 
complish anything worthwhile. 

We discovered, too. that these principles that we proclaim 
in Freemasonry can be understood only through action. A 
man named Goethe, a great German poet, a Mason, it is said 
his dying words were "more light." I don't know about that 
but I do know that he left five words in English which have 
great significance, when he said: "the highest cannot be 
spoken." 

The late L. P. Jacks, editor of the Hibbert Journal, and! 
Principal of the Manchester College in Oxford said, this does 
not mean now that the highest will forever escape us because 
it cannot be spoken. What Goethe meant was the highest 
cannot be spoken because it can be acted only. And he said 
it is through action that we not only grasp firmly ourselves 
but that we communicate it clearly to one another. There is 
a language of action, as well as a language of words, and that 
it is true the language of action is the more telling, more 
intelligible, more unmistakable and, in the deepest sense, 
more eloquent. 

Is this man Jacks right? Decide for yourselves. Take 
love for example; here the highest cannot be spoken; you 
can write poetry about love until you exhaust your vocabu- 
lary; you can sdng about love until your voice is reduced to 
a whisper and still you do not know what love is. But when 
you se a mother take garments from her own freezing body 
and wrap them around the body of a child, her child, that it 
might be warm, then you know what love is — because the 
highest cannot be spoken; it can be acted. 

All that the moralists have written about integrity 
cannot make us understand it as well as Sir Walter Scott 
does in the closing years of his life when he slaved to write 
in order that he might be able to discbarge his financial 
obligations for which he had no legal obligation. 



11 APPENDIX "B" 

Now there is integrity in action. We talk about Free- 
masonry, about brotherhood; we learn, of course, that brother- 
hood doesn't mean acting - towards those who are our brothers 
in Freemasomy because, you see we've pushed back the 
walls of the Lodge to the edge of creation. We have to 
develop the universality of Freemasonry and clarity of 
brotherhood should be equally intensive, that is, a man is 
not a true Mason until he is a brother of all of the sons of 
men. 

Brotherhood cannot be spoken; it must be acted, acted 
as Mark Ball acted it. for example. Mark Ball is the Super- 
intendent of our Masonic Home in Charlton, Massachusetts, 
high on a hill, not far from Route 20. the main highway 
between Boston and New York. In 1955 — many of you up 
here will well remember Hurricane Hazel and how it doubled 
back on its course, deluged Massachusetts with a rain until 
a whispering stream became a raging torrent, and bridges 
were swept away like matches, and that happened down in 
Charlton. 

Now Mark Ball sent a message out on the air to the 
Village of Charlton that if any there were marooned, to come 
up to the Home and he would try and find food and shelter 
for them. And they came; eighty-five in number came up 
to this Home, and some of them stayed for as long as seventy- 
two hours there, in spite of the fact that they had no power 
in the Home, yet they took care of those eighty-five people. 
Mark Ball didn't send out a message "if there are any Masons 
down there — this is a Masonic Home — if there are any 
Masons down there let them come up and then they would 
receive admission by card, or cryptic word, or sign! There 
wasn't anything- like that at all. The only qualification for 
admission was their need. That was brotherhood in action; 
that was Freemasonry at its ultimate best. 

Some of you who are Kipling fans will remember that 
Kipling had his own way. talking about this particular thing. 
You remember that story of his about Tomlinson — how does 
it go: 

Now Tomlinson gave up the ghost in his house in 

Berkely Square 
And a spirit came to his bedside and gripped him by the 

hai 1 ", 
A spirit gripped him by the hair and carried ham far 

away, 
Till he heard as the roar of a rain-fed ford the roar of 

the milky way: 
Till he heard the roar of the milky way die down and 

drone and cease, 
And they came to the gate within the wall where Peter 

holds the keys. 



APPENDIX "B" 12 

'Stand up, stand up now, Tomlinson, and answer loud 

and high 
The good that ye did for the sake of men or ever ye 

came to die — 
The good that ye did for the sake of men on little earth 

so lone!" 
And the naked soul of Tomlinson grew white as a rain- 
washed bone. 
The winds that blow between the worlds it cut him like 

a knife. 
And Tomlinson took up the tale and spoke of his good 

in life. 
'Oh this I have read in a book', he said, and that was 

told to me, 
And this I have thought that another man thought of 

a Prince in Muscovy; 
The good souls flocked like homing doves and bade him 

clear the path, 
And Peter twirled his jangling keys in weariness and 

wrath. 
'Ye have read, ye have heard, ye have thought', he said, 

'and the tale is yet to run: 
By the worth of the body that once ye had, now tell me 

— what have ye done?' 

What have you done? That is the ultimate question. 

All that we proclaim in the way of principle, all that we 
proclaim in the way of ideal finds its proof in action — and 
comes to life in action. 

Somebody said, "what can we do as Masons, we are 
prohibited from doing so much because we are not allowed 
to, so how can we make a good Impact on the life of the 
world?" Well, not by going into the political arena and 
using Masonry as a club with which to disable our enemies, 
or even as a tool by which we can help our friends — what can 
we do ? 

Well, even in the face of those conditions Masons need 
not be supine or helpless. Freemasonry must be neutral, 
but Masons may not be neutral. We want no part of the man 
described in the "Advise and Consent", that best-seller at the 
present time, who was described as "the Equivocal Man", 
the man who could always find a good reason for being 
hospitable to this, could always find an excuse for not being 
too hostile to that: a man who can slide in between the sharp 
edges of clashing principles and find some glib and woozy 
area of gummy compromise that effectively blurs everything. 

A Mason must take sides in every community, yours and 
mine. Every community is organized for the purpose of 
aiding the lives of the people of that particular community, 



13 APPENDIX "B" 

and there isn't any place where we can divorce ourselves 
from the lives of the community, not as Masons we can't. 

There is something there that can be done for the com- 
munity by each of us. We belong to two classes, and two 
classes only. I never think of those two classes but what I 
think of the expression that I read one time 'that all men are 
divided into two classes — those who do what their wives tell 
them, and those who aren't married.' (Laughter). 

In our communities there are those two classes, there are 
those who are part of the problems of the community, and 
there are those who are part of the solution of the problems 
of the community. 

Now you know what I mean when I say 'what can we 
do?' We can take our side affirmatively on the side of those 
who belong to the solution of the problems of the community. 

It's not enough to say that we believe in the general 
principles of Freemasonry unless we are willing to accept 
the particular imperatives dictated by those general princi- 
ples and, if I may use my own field as an illustration, there 
is no way by which I can honestly say that I am interested 
in keeping the idea of God. the life of the world, and then 
become completely indifferent to the one instrument, 'that is, 
mediating the idea of God to the life of the world. 

We must be interested in ultimate ends, but we must 
also be interested in the immediate urgencies so that our 
ultimate ends may be realized in the world. 

Now it's not enough for us to dream up dreams of great 
ends that we desire in life; we must become part of the day 
by day compulsions by which those dreams can find reality. 

Freemasonry is not an escape mechanism; it isn't an 
ivory tower; it is not an escape from the problems and the 
tensions that are increasingly inevitable in our particular 
kind of world. Freemasonry presents to us the obligation, an 
obligation from which we cannot escape by playing at the 
idea of brotherhood as a substitute for the realities of that 
brotherhood — as somebody has said, "it takes away all of 
our cushions and leaves us with a cross." Freemasonry 
means the release of Freemasonry as a great, constructive 
force in the life of the world. 

We are privileged men. To us has been given a vision 
of a new life for humanity, a vision of a better life for the 
world, and to us is ever committed the obligation of trying 
to translate that vision and that dream into reality — not at 
some time in the future, but now. 



APPENDIX "B" 14 

"This is your hour, creep up on it, 
Summon your power, leap upon it; 
Grasp it, clasp it, hold it tight; 
Strike it, spike it with full might; 
If you take too long to ponder, 
Opportunity may wander. 
Hesitation is a mire; 
Climb up, climb out, climb on higher! 
Do your best and do it now! 
Live your best, and Live it now!" 

Thankyou. 

DEPUTY GRAND MASTER, R. W.TRELEAVEN: 

Most Wor. Grand Master, Distinguished Guests: Any 
man who is accustomed to public speaking does not need a 
formal vote of thanks to express to him the attitude of the 
audience to which he has been speaking. He knows as he 
goes along whether his address is being appreciated or not, 
and our distinguished guest, therefore, needs no words of 
mine to thank him on your behalf for this splendid address. 
The rapt attention that was given to his address, the spontan- 
eous and hearty applause which greeted him as he closed his 
address have told him — by action if you will — better than any 
words could explain how well his address has been appreciated. 

I think, my brethren, that he has flattered us to-night 
by addressing us on a high intellectual plane. He has not 
sought to please us with a lot of pious platitudes which we 
like to hear but which are not particularly stimulating. He 
has flattered us by speaking to us, as I have said, on a high 
intellectual plane and he has exalted Masonry. 

I venture to suggest. Most Worshipful Sir, — I know this 
is true in my case, I believe it is true in the case of everyone 
of this audience to-night — 'that Masonry is going to mean 
a little bit more to us from now on because of this splendid 
address which we have heard to-night and, sir, therefore, on 
behalf of this grroup, may I accept this task which has been 
allotted to me of thanking you most heartily. (Applause). 

DR. THOMAS S. ROY: Thank you. 

GRAND MASTER C. McL. PITTS: 

I think, my brethren, you will agree with me that it was 
a most fortunate opportunity that led me to contact Dr. Roy 
at a Masonic gathering and become assured of his acceptance 
of being with us to-night. 

We are grateful to you, Dr. Roy, and there again are 
placed under obligation to you for your wonderful address 
this evening. 



16 APPENDIX "B" 

Now, my brethren, we have had a wonderful feast of 
wisdom and inspiration in our talk on Freemasonry and our 
great fraternal association together. And now, my brethren, 
you are dismissed. 

— Adjourned sine die.
